Practical services for your credit card

Increase your security when paying online with 3-D Secure. With the SMS card service, you also have access to your latest transactions.

  • 3-D Secure is an internationally recognized security standard that offers protection for payments by credit and prepaid cards online. 3-D Secure is used by many online shops and is free of charge.

    This is how 3-D Secure works

    Once you have registered for the service, a new window opens during the payment process next time you make purchases online. The security notice you have selected appears in the window, prompting you to enter your personal password for identification purposes.

    Here’s how to register for 3-D Secure

    You can either register directly here or you will be asked to do so automatically next time you make purchases from an online shop that offers 3-D Secure. You need your credit or prepaid card to register as well as your card account number. This information can be found on your transaction overview/monthly invoice or in e-finance.

    Changing the password & security notice

    Under “My 3-D Secure”, you can change your password and security notice at any time and as often as you wish.
