Verified by Visa

Verified by Visa

Verified by Visa protects your card against unauthorised use and gives you peace of mind when shopping online.

Once you’ve signed up to Verified by Visa, you’ll be protected whenever you make an online payment with your Visa card at any one of more than 300,000 web sites across Europe.

Verified by Visa involves two quick steps to authenticate your purchase.

  • First you’ll see the personal message that you provided when you signed up for Verified by Visa and that only you and your bank know about. This lets you know that the security screen you’re seeing is genuine
  • Then you’ll be asked to enter your Verified by Visa password.

Depending on your bank, the Verified by Visa security screen will look like this:

Verified by Visa not only protects your card against unauthorised use, it also means you can have confidence that the online retailer you’re buying from has made your security a priority.
