3D Secure card protection

3D Secure is a security method implemented by the Visa and Mastercard Associations and managed by South African banks to strengthen security of online transactions.

3D Secure provides an extra layer of security and protects the buyer against fraudulent use by unauthorised individuals by requiring the cardholder to validate the transaction by entering a personal code or a one time pin usually sent to the cardholders cell phone or email address. 

MasterCard brands their system as ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ and Visa brands their system as ‘Verified by Visa’.
