Verified by Visa

We've worked with Visa Canada to provide customers with more information about the Verified by Visa service.

What is Verified by Visa?
Verified by Visa is a global Visa program designed to help make shopping online even more secure for cardholders by protecting against unauthorized use of your Visa® card.

How does Verified by Visa work?

When you sign up for Verified by Visa, you choose a personal password on your card issuer's website. This password is then used by your card issuer to confirm your authenticity during the checkout process when shopping online. It's that simple.

Nothing. Verified by Visa is absolutely free for Visa cardholders.

Do I need a new card to use Verified by Visa?

It's very simple:

  • sign up at your card issuer's website during the checkout process or
  • visit your card issuer's website and sign up there
