I live in the EU and therefore I can’t use the services of privacy.com (they won’t allow EU-citizen to use their services in their terms & conditions). So I was looking for an alternative.
Seems like the only alternative for EU-citizen would be Revolut.
But I have some privacy concerns with Revolut.
Therefore I wanted to know what you think?
Do you have any suggestions?
note: I wanted to use privacy.com to hide my real CreditCard information while shopping online (and maybe while using ApplePay??)
I’ve been using Revolut for a while now. It supports Apple Pay and you can generate disposable cards with one click. Since I don’t have a real credit card, this has been a lifesaver for international purchases.
It sadly is really the only service that somewhat compares to privacy.com, although, it is not a privacy service or a disposable card service. It is a bank account that offers disposable cards, so do keep that in mind.
If you are trying to cloak your card number from merchants while using Apple Pay, Apple already does that.
For example, if your card number is ****1234 it will appear to the merchant as ****4321 as Apple assigns a unique device card number to your payment card and replaces your original card number with the device number.
Been a while since I used it but I was not thrilled by its other Revolut customers restrictions or it roaches go in but they don’t go out approach to cryptocurrency. I didn’t find anything compelling to offset its limitations. But I used privacy.com all the time and love it.
