Verified by Visa

Verified by Visa can make online shopping even more secure.

Verified by Visa is a secure online platform designed to provide you with added security when shopping online.


Once you are registered with Verified by Visa, you may be prompted to answer three security questions at the checkout of participating online stores, such as your card number, your name on your card or your date of birth. Once you have answered these questions correctly, your transaction will be processed as usual. This information is not given to the retailer and assures you, the retailer and to us that your card is not being used without your permission.

How do I register for the program?

There are two ways to register for the program;

  1. The first is a manual activation which is done just before completing your purchase online. If you are shopping at an online store which is a part of the program, you will be prompted to sign up before the payment will be accepted.
  2. The second is to register here before shopping online.

Will I be asked my security questions each time I shop online?

Not all online stores participate in the program. Once you are registered, if you are purchasing at an online store not in the program, you will proceed to the checkout as usual.

Once I have registered, what if I forget my password?

You can change your password by visiting the Verified by Visa website.
