A valid credit card number has several fields and each of them has a meaning. For the technically inclined, this number complies to the ISO 7812 numbering standard. An contains a six-digit issuer identification number (IIN), an individual account identification number, and a single digit checksum.
The credit card numbers you generate on this page are completely random. When we say they are valid, we merely imply that they are a possible combination of characters which will validate when passed through the MOD 10 algorithm. You can also generate valid credit card numbers for specific Issuing Networks by utilising their particular prefixes. However, we do not provide you (obviously) with the correspondent verification code for these cards, as they are completely fake and made up randomly.
If you've ever found yourself trying to try a product online which required a credit card, even when you just want to take a look, you know why we made this. We believe there's no need to share such information with providers without the actual intent to buy stuff. Anyone can make a website with a form and require you to insert valuable and sensitive information which requires you to give up your privacy. This is a way to protect yourself in such situations.
The other reason we made this are programmers testing ecommerce websites, applications or other software. They usually need lots of fake data, and this is a very easy way to generate a bunch of valid credit card numbers in a split second. There's another tool for those times when you need to generate all other kinds of data.
Credit card generators are not machines in their own right. They are simply software programs that use different credit card companies' number generating rules to create numerically valid credit card numbers.It used to validate that the card number is legitimate using the Luhn algorithm. The credit card generator software uses these and other rules and generates hundreds, even thousands, of numbers that fit these rules.creditcards.lovetoknow.com
The Luhn algorithm or Luhn formula, also known as the "modulus 10" or "mod 10" algorithm, is a simple checksum formula used to validate a variety of identification numbers, such as credit card numbers, IMEI numbers, National Provider Identifier numbers in the US...en.wikipedia.org
Get them from darkcoding-credit-card on github, or Download (zip) all versions. If you want to go one step further and generate a whole test identity, try the Fake Name Generator. It makes use of this credit card generator, and adds a lot of other identity data.I never understood why people didn’t realise that a number that obeys mod10 does not suddenly give you a credit card account. There’s lots of obvious (and also some subtle) bits and pieices missing so a wannabe skiddie is never going to get very far armed with just an algorithm and a load of not so random numbers.www.darkcoding.net
