First use, the card did not require pin!

Tonight my wife received her new curve card. We activated it, went to a certain atm to change the pin and were ready to go. Since the contactless is normally non operative until the first use of the card we went to an ice cream shop and upon paying the owner inserted the card into the pos and the card did not ask for pin! The payment (5 euros) was ok but we felt unsafe because everyone with the card into his hands could spend. How was that? Any idea? Is there something we are missing?

Your pin change at the ATM was the first use, after that it was possible to pay contactless (without pin).


Thanks a lot, I didn’t imagine that.
Have a nice evening.
