What is MSR?

The data will be encoded inside a magnetic strip behind a credit or ID card and the reader device gets access to the information after swiping the card.Read More
Although swipe cards are easy to use, cheap, and portable cards, the encoded data may be easily destroyed if composed to a strong magnetic force. Therefore, some more sophisticated technologies like NFC, chip cards, or RFID cards have been developed. A magstripe card can be used to open your hotel room, contain your credit information of your bank account, contain your identity information, etc. The MSR technology is also used at airports to extract passengers’ personal information from ID cards or for payment options.
