  • Is Verified by Visa on my Debit Card the same as 3D Secure on my Bank of Ireland Credit Card?

    Yes - 3D Secure is the generic term for the online security system Bank of Ireland has launched in conjunction with MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa. However it is worth noting that you will be asked different questions to verify your identity for your Bank of Ireland Credit Card and Bank of Ireland Debit Card.

  • What is Verified by Visa?

    Verified by Visa is a fraud prevention system that protects you from unauthorised online use of your Visa Debit card.

    When you purchase goods or services online, you may be prompted to enter a one-time passcode, sent to your mobile phone by text message, to authorise the transaction and confirm that the card is yours.

    You have a set amount of time and a number of attempts to enter the passcode correctly. If you do not enter the passcode correctly, you will be unable to complete your online purchase.

    The passcode will only be valid for the online purchase you have received it for.
