Difference between unsecured and secured credit cards?
An unsecured card is different from a secured card in that it does not require collateral. The holder of an unsecured card is not required to put down any money for the card and does not need to prove their income or assets. Unsecured cards can be issued with limits as low as $500, whereas secured cards generally have higher limits.
Secured cards are often marketed as "safer" than unsecured cards because they require the cardholder to put down collateral and prove their income or assets. However, this is only true if the secured credit limit is high enough to cover all transactions made with the card, which may not always be the case. Users who have been denied for an unsecured card are more likely to signup for secured cards.

Please make sure you have paid your balance off before doing so. An unpaid balance can result in a charge off. This can damage your credit and prevent you from being approved for other unsecured cards.
