Privacy Through Anonymous Prepaid Credit Cards

Everything you need to know about anonymous prepaid credit cards and your privacy

We live in a strange time where we feel like we have privacy — after all, we spend a lot of time alone and busy — but in fact, we have less privacy than at any time in history.

We compromise our own privacy through the many arguably necessary things we use: social networking, online banking, and above all, credit cards. That’s where the idea of anonymous prepaid credit cards come in.

Anonymous Prepaid Credit Cards for the Holidays

With the holidays coming up, consider anonymous prepaid credit cards for family or friends in need

Anonymous prepaid credit cards are fantastic holiday gifts (or anytime gifts, really) that allow your friends or family to save face and get some much-needed money. Let me tell you a little story. As a kid, my parents, through no fault of their own, lost their jobs. Our family struggled, and a close relative tried to give us five hundred bucks to tide us over.

To my parents, that was the ultimate blow to their pride. Not only did they refuse the money, they were angry at that family member for years. What was meant as a kindhearted gesture became a family rift.

Anonymous prepaid credit cards are perfect for these situations.

How to Get An Anonymous Prepaid Credit Card

Looking for an anonymous prepaid credit card? There are more options than you think

I’m not talking about criminals, I’m talking about regular, ordinary people who don’t want the government, their favorite charities, or the places they shop tracking their transactions.

Prepaid Credit Cards: The Slightly Safer Version Of Debit Cards

Prepaid Credit Cards 101

Prepaid credit cards are gaining popularity as gifts and as tools for managing personal finance. The premise behind prepaid credit cards is that they are activated via the addition of funds, which are then depleted with each purchase until the card is “empty.” Unlike gift cards, which can only be used at the issuing store, prepaid credit cards are accepted anywhere that a particular credit card is accepted, giving the recipient more flexibility with regards to the purchase choices. This also makes them an ideal way to control monthly spending.

Since the purchases made with a prepaid credit card have already been funded with a cash deposit, it is not possible to overspend your cash reserves with overzealous credit card swipes (when they need to be paid off later!).
