The new security measures will assess each online transaction and decide if you will need to take an extra step at checkout. If you do, you’ll be guided through this process.
Many banks in Europe have chosen Visa’s solution to support Two-factor authentication called Visa Secure.
Visa Secure helps banks confirm you are you when you make an online purchase. This service helps make shopping online more secure by protecting the unauthorised use of your Visa card.
When you shop online and see the Visa Secure badge on participating merchant sites, this means your online purchases are secured with Visa.
There’s no need to download anything, install software or register. During an online purchase from your desktop, mobile or other digital device, you may be asked to provide additional information to confirm you are the genuine cardholder.
This will give you even more confidence and protection when paying with your Visa.
