Verified by Visa is a payment authentication tool which ensures that only you can use your card during online transactions. All existing and new Visa cards are automatically registered for this free service.

The program is being offered by a growing number of online merchants throughout the world - currently more than 200,000 stores worldwide. Look for the Verified by Visa symbol as a sign that these merchants value both your business and your privacy.

Each time you make an online purchase with a participating merchant, the Verified by Visa program assesses the risk level of the transaction. Certain activity may seem out of the ordinary - maybe because it’s a high dollar value transaction, or a retailer you’ve never bought with before. In these instances you may be asked to confirm your "member number" so we can be sure the card isn't used without your permission.

This takes only seconds and provides significantly higher protection than you would have received previously.
Verified by Visa is available for both Visa Debit and Visa Credit cards.
