How secure is my K Ring?

How secure is my K Ring?

As K Ring uses the same technology as a contactless debit card, transactions made with your ring are just as secure as those made with a traditional contactless card. Furthermore, to make a payment with K Ring, it must be within very close proximity to a contactless reader and your hand must be in the Transmission Ready position to avoid any unintended transfer of data or funds.

Contactless transactions made with K Ring over the Mastercard® network are just as secure as using Chip & PIN. Your transactional data is always encrypted and because K Ring never leaves your finger, the risk of cloning or theft is significantly reduced.

If your K Ring is linked to a K Wearables Virtual Prepaid Mastercard account, you are protected by the stringent rules of the FCA; K Ring also provides you with all the tools you need to add further layers of security to your transactions, such as:
  1. The ability to switch your ring on and off, anytime, anywhere
  2. Constant background transactional risk assessments
  3. Balance notifications
