Credit card safety
We're all concerned about credit card fraud after the recent widespread theft of credit card information from retailers.
Now we have information about a new credit system in the works that could make us a lot safer.
Some card companies are looking to upgrade to "smart cards" --something many other countries made the switch to years ago.
You'll swipe your card into a card reader, enter in a pin number, then go -- no signature required.
The new cards will be embedded with a microchip with security data that experts say will be harder to hack.
Visa and Mastercard have already announced that they'll make the switch by October of 2015.
