3-D Secure

3-D Secure (called "Verified by Visa" with Visa) is the internationally recognized security standard for online credit card payments. When you shop online using your wow Visa Card, 3-D Secure is used for cardholder identification and therefore provides additional security. 

Shop even easier using 3-D Secure with the Transakt app

The Transakt app uses a dynamic 3-D Secure process and not a static password:

  • Once you have installed the app, you receive a push notification on your smartphone with every online purchase. So you can conveniently check your online payment and confirm your identity with just one click. Without entering any password.
  • If the amount is incorrect or seems suspicious to you in any other way, you can simply stop the transaction in the app.
