Visa® Secure

What is Visa Secure?

Visa Secure helps protect your card against unauthorized use when you shop online.

Visa has developed a program that helps ensure that payments are made by the rightful owner of the Visa account, to make online purchases more secure. We aim to make your online transactions as secure, fast and convenient as purchases you make in a store.


  • An extra layer of security for online transactions
  • Increased confidence in the safety of online purchases
  • When required, a simple, easy-to-use interface

What do I have to do to sign up?

Nothing. There is no enrollment or password required.

How does it work?

When you shop online and see the Visa Secure badge on participating merchant sites, this means your online purchases are secured with Visa. Visa has developed a program that helps confirm your identity when you make an online purchase. This service helps make shopping online more secure by protecting against unauthorized use of your Visa card.

Whether you’re using a desktop, mobile or other digital device, you may be guided through an additional check to verify your identity. This helps Alpine Bank know you’re really you, and it better protects you from fraud.
