This isn’t really a new idea, since the idea of single-use, disposable virtual cards has been around for ever. (I do like the idea of calling them “burner” cards, however as I think that’s a super bit of marketing.) Anyway, the scheme works by getting you to hand over your online banking username and password… wait, what?

Now imagine what this kind of service might look like in the UK in a couple of year’s time, post-PSD2.
