• Visa Secure with EMV® 3-D Secure

    Next generation authentication to make global eCommerce secure in real-time.

Visa Secure with EMV 3-D Secure

Visa pioneered the original 3-D Secure protocol more than 15 years ago to protect eCommerce transactions by providing an additional layer of identity verification before authorization. 3-D Secure (3DS) enables the exchange of data between the merchant, card issuer and, when necessary, the consumer, to validate that the transaction is being initiated by the rightful owner of the account.

How it works

Visa Secure with EMV 3-D Secure benefits all stakeholders in an enhanced data exchange. Already in use by issuers and merchants around the world today. Visa Secure will continue evolving to protect new payment channels as they are developed.
