Privacy & Security
We know that privacy and security are important to you and we want you to know that’s important to us too.
While you may use your BC Services Card to access different services, your privacy is still protected. For example, a health care provider will not be able to see your driving record, while a police officer or ICBC employee will not have access to your health records.
Security and Card Features
The BC Services Card was designed to ensure that services are delivered to the right person and that only authorized service providers are given access to your personal information. BC Services Cards are designed with the same BC Driver’s Licence features that help to prevent theft and fraud.
Every BC Services Card has a chip embedded in it - similar to the ones used by credit and debit cards in Canada. Your BC Services Card online account is protected by a passcode similar to the Personal Identification Number (PIN) you use with your bank card.
