    New Code for Credit Cards

    Most credit and debit cards have a magnetic strip that can be copied.

    I suggest a type of code that is embedded into the card that can't be copied. The code does not have to look like the photo above but could be any shape or even vary in shape from card to card. Instead of it being printed on the card, it could be metal particles or other material embedded in the card so it can't be seen. It could possibly be the same material as the card but with a different density and arranged into a code.

    A card like this could be used for other things too like a voter card we get when registering to vote or a drivers license, social security card, etc.
