Verified by Visa is a global service that was designed by Visa® to improve security for online purchases. It verifies authentication of an online (Internet) shopper in real time through the use of the personal password linked with your Visa CheckCard. Once you register for the service, no one else can use your card at any online participating Verified by Visa merchant without your unique password. That's added security for you!
It's easy to register and it's a free service from Visa. Don't wait! Protect yourself against unauthorized use of your Visa CheckCard and feel confident every time you shop online at participating merchants.
If you choose not to activate your card, you may shop as usual. However, participating merchants will require activation after you use their site several times.
