What is Verified by Visa / Securecode?

Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode are security programmes from Visa and MasterCard which give you enhanced protection when shopping online. They allow you to create your own personal password, known only to you, for use as an extra security measure each time you use your Visa and MasterCard payment cards to make a purchase online. Many well known stores are providing this added security for customers to give you peace of mind when shopping online.


How do they work?

You need to register with VbV and SecureCode once to create your password for each of your payment cards. Then, whenever you shop online using your registered cards, you will be asked to enter the relevant password as an additional validation before the order is confirmed.


What do I need to do to register?

To register with VbV or SecureCode you need to complete the details in the box on the right so that Visa or MasterCard can verify your card. After entering your personal details you will then be asked to create a personal password which will then be use to authenticate future orders placed online with your Visa or MasterCard payment cards at participating stores. The details you enter in this process will be submitted to your card issuer over a secure link.


What if I am already registered?

If you have already registered you just need to enter the requested letters from your personal VbV or SecureCode password in the box on the right to continue.


Any other questions?

If you have any other questions regarding this process please contact your card issuer.
