What is 3D Secure?
3D Secure is a fraud prevention system that protects you from unauthorised online use of your Visa Debit card.
When you register, you create a ‘Verified by Visa’ password that you keep secret, like your PIN. When you purchase goods or services online, you will be asked for your Verified by Visa password to authorise the transaction and confirm that the card is yours.
Please note, we are making some changes to our Verified by Visa Service which will be phased in from 5th July 2017. Please see a copy of the press notice for more detail.
