Is the virtual card secure? What’s to stop someone using my phone and virtual card to get on site?

CSCS are keen to highlight to employers that virtual cards are safe and secure, but just like the traditional plastic card, they should always be electronically checked using the Go Smart software.  This is to ensure the card is valid, the photo is of the correct person and to confirm that the holder has the appropriate training and qualifications for the job they do on site.

The My CSCS app which contains the virtual CSCS card is secure, so it is not possible to edit the virtual card to show anything which has not been verified by CSCS.
