What is 3-D Secure and how can I use it for my credit card?

You can pay safely online with your credit card by using 3-D Secure.

3-D has been developed by leading credit card companies to protect credit card payments online. More and more banks are now using this system.

The allocation of a secret password ensures that only you as the credit cardholder can make payments with the card. It is no longer sufficient simply to know credit card details to make a payment.

The secret password is only known to you as the credit cardholder and to your credit card issuing bank and must be entered into a pop-up input window from your credit card bank at the end of payment process. This prevents your password being stolen by ‘phishing’.

When you pay with your credit card for the first time in the 3-D Secure system, you will be asked to choose a secret password and enter it within the credit card bank’s input window. You will use this password for all future purchases using credit card payment with 3-D Secure.

3-D Secure is available to you free of charge as a credit card user.

To find out whether your credit card already supports 3-D Secure, please ask your credit card company.
