What is 'Verified by Visa' and 'Visa Secure'?

Visa Secure is the new name for Verified by Visa.  It helps to protect you from fraud when you're shopping online. Anything you buy online goes through this extra layer of security.

Based on your previous purchase history and information such as what devices you've used to shop with online in the past, means that most of the time, this extra security layer will work automatically and you won't need to do anything.

From time to time you'll be asked to 'Confirm it's you' with Visa Secure when you're shopping online.

There are three ways to choose from to do this.

Use our app - it's the most secure and convenient way to do this. There are no codes, just a few taps and you’re done. It’s quick and easy to download - and it’s free. You need to be 18 or over to use the app. T&Cs apply.

By text message - We’ll send you a one-time verification code to your UK mobile number, which you then enter into the verification screen to confirm it’s you.

Using a PINsentry card reader - A PINsentry card reader generates a code to enter into the verification screen to help confirm it’s you. To use this, you’ll need to have your Barclaycard and card PIN to hand.
