SECURE ONLINE SHOPPING AND PAYMENTS
3-D Secure is a security standard for online payments using American Express, Mastercard and Visa cards. More and more online shops are relying on 3-D Secure to reliably identify card payers and therefore protect the seller and buyer from fraudulent use of the credit card.
American Express, Mastercard and Visa developed 3-D Secure as a security standard for online payments. During this process you identify yourself using a code that is sent by SMS or using the Transakt app. Look out for the American Express SafeKey®, Mastercard SecureCodeTM or Verified by Visa logo when you’re shopping or paying online.
