3D Secure simply means your transaction is ‘Verified by Visa’. A similar system developed by Mastercard is MasterCard SecureCode.
3D Secure adds an extra layer of security decreasing the risk of people being able to use your card fraudulently on the internet. It’s easy to use and you can be confident that your online payment is secure.
The system allows card issuers (e.g.your bank) to check by use of a code or password, that the purchaser is the authentic cardholder, at the point of buying from an online seller (merchant). The merchant does not capture this code or password so it reduces the risk of security incidents at online merchants. There is also no way for hackers to get the password.
The 3D Secure page comes from your card issuer (e.g. your bank). It is not a TV Licensing website page.
Your card issuer may need additional security information from you. This can happen if you have not registered for the 3D Secure (Verified by Visa) service with your bank.
