What is Verified by Visa?

Verified by Visa is a service that protects you when you use your St.George Visa card to buy online from participating stores. It makes shopping online with your St.George Visa card safer and more secure by verifying the identity of the cardholder. It adds extra security on your credit card at no additional cost.

How does Verified by Visa work?

Verified by Visa uses advanced 3-D Secure technology to verify your identity as you shop online. If the system detects anything that looks slightly unusual – if you make a large purchase or buy something from a new device, for example – it asks the cardholder for additional information to confirm the transaction is genuine.

The purpose of Verified by Visa is to bring more of the security and convenience of face-to-face transactions to the experience of shopping online. It’s a simple but comprehensive way to protect cardholders against fraud – an extra layer of security to make your online shopping experience better and safer.
