What is 3D Secure?
3D Secure is an additional security layer for online credit and debit card transactions. It adds an extra authentication step when making any online purchases and is available to MasterCard and Visa cardholders.
When you enable your Visa or MasterCard card for 3D Secure payments at your bank, you will be required to create a 3D Secure code, a unique code made up of digits, letters and symbols. It serves to confirm your identity when making any online transactions.
What are the benefits?
3D Secure decreases the risk of fraud and protects you against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card by verifying your identity each time you make an online purchase. This new technology has made online shopping safer for both merchants and customers.
How do I activate 3D Secure?
To activate 3D Secure payments, you must contact the bank that issued your Visa or MasterCard credit or debit card and request it. You will be asked to create a code that will then be used to confirm your identity when making an online transaction. This service is free and registering your card shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.
How do I deposit with 3D Secure?
You will be required to enter your 3D Secure code or password each time you make a deposit into your GI-Broker trading account. Select the credit or debit card payment option and enter your card details. A new window or popup will then appear and you will be asked to enter your 3D Secure code. The bank will automatically verify the code to authenticate you and approve the transaction.
