In seconds, your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase to be completed.

Then, when you make purchases at participating online stores, a Verified by Visa window will appear. Simply enter your password and click submit. Your identity is verified and the purchase is secure. To learn more, contact the financial institution that issued your Visa card.
