Abstract: A multisided card having at least two obverse faces and two reverse faces that are adjacent one another, can be used to print and store relatively insecure information of the obverse faces and to have more sensitive information stored and printed on the adjacent reverse faces. To protect privacy, a caricature or cartoon of an individual can be placed on an obverse face, which image cannot be read by facial recognition techniques but could be recognized by human observers. Many of the features of the card can be utilized in a virtual card that exists in machine memory or cyberspace. A virtual purse or wallet can be created in which to store such virtual cards.
