Checarda is an app that allows you to check our virtual smartcard's details using a PC or Laptop:
Recommended and approved smartcard readers are available from Smartcard Focus.
Please note: iOS is only available for reading virtual smartcards.
The card reader pulls information either directly from the physical smartcard’s chip or from the virtual smartcard’s secure, short-life QR code. Information from the card read is then surfaced on a PC or laptop screen. This not only reduces the possibility of card fraud, but also makes capturing and storing smartcard details much quicker and more efficient.
When Checarda is used to read a card online, it checks for updates against the card data first prior to surfacing the information. When reading a physical card offline, the most recently available data stored on the smartcard chip is presented. When a virtual card is read offline, Checarda validates the authenticity of the card immediately and later downloads the full card data once an internet connection is available.
