To make online purchases even more secure, users of GBP, EUR and USD payment cards are strongly recommended to activate Verified by Visa (VBV) protection. When you complete your payment with VBV, your bank is able to make additional security checks to ensure your card details have not been compromised.
It is easy to activate Verified by Visa protection:
- When using VBV for the first time, fill out the following card details in the window that opens: Signature Panel Code (CVV2 number), Expiration Date, and your Date Of Birth. Get acquainted with the Terms & Conditions. Then, to activate a VBV account, click Activate Now (this implies that you agree to the Terms & Conditions).
Create a password: it should be 8-20 characters long with no spaces. Confirm it by re-entering. Click Submit.
Once you have created the VBV account, each time you make an online transaction supported by VBV, you will be brought to the page below. Here, you will be asked to enter three digits from your password that have been selected at random by the system. Enter them and click Submit. Your identity is verified and the purchase is secure.
