How does using a virtual card number protect me from fraudulent charges?

Using a virtual card number can provide an extra layer of security and protect against fraudulent charges. Virtual card numbers are temporary card numbers that are linked to your actual credit or debit card account, but can only be used for a single transaction or a limited time period. By using a virtual card number, you can avoid giving out your actual card number to merchants or websites, which can reduce the risk of your card information being stolen. If a virtual card number is compromised, it can simply be deactivated, without affecting your actual card account. Some credit card issuers and banks offer virtual card numbers as part of their fraud protection services.
