What is Verified by Visa?

You might have heard of 3D Secure before. Verified by Visa is just another name for it. It is a free security service that protects against the unauthorized use of your Cryptopay card while shopping online at all participating merchants.

What are the benefits of the Verified by Visa service?

You will be asked for your Verified by Visa one-time password every time you make an online purchase at any participating merchant. The Verified by Visa password works just like a PIN that is used at an ATM. It adds an additional authentication step for online payments.

Each time you make an online purchase, a window will pop up asking for your Verified by Visa password. When you correctly enter your Verified by Visa password, your card issuer confirms that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase is completed. No code means no confirmation and no purchase.

Do I need to register for Verified by Visa?

There is no need for separate registration, all the Cryptopay cards are automatically enrolled in Verified by Visa. You'll receive the one-time passwords to the phone number linked to your Cryptopay account.

Is everyone eligible for Verified by Visa service?

Everyone holding an active Wirecard issued Cryptopay Visa card is eligible for the Verified by Visa service. The service is available for both plastic and virtual cards.

I haven't received the Verified by Visa code, what should I do?
