Verified by Visa helps ensure that payments are made by the rightful owner of the Visa account, to make online purchases more secure. It aims to make your online transactions as secure, fast, and convenient as purchases you make in a store.

Verified by Visa usually works behind the scenes when you're shopping online, using advanced technology to confirm your identity. If there’s any doubt – such as when you use a new device or make an unusually large purchase - you may be asked by your bank to provide more information to confirm the purchase.

  • 90% of VBV transactions are approved without any interaction from the cardholder.
  • Cardholders no longer need a password for VBV.
