We all love the convenience of online shopping but are a bit reluctant to use our credit cards online.
What is Verified By Visa?
"Verified by Visa" is a simple-to-use service that confirms your identity with an extra password when you make an online transaction at participating online retailers. It is just like entering your PIN at an ATM.
Why should I register for Verified by Visa?
It allows you to get an extra layer of security when you shop online at participating online merchants. When you enter correctly your VbV code, you confirm that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase is completed. If an incorrect VBV code is entered, the purchase will not be completed. Even if someone knows your card number, the purchase cannot be completed without your VBV code at a participating online retailer.
How do I identify participating online retailers?
