Verified by Visa Changes to Visa Secure

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Visa recently enhanced its security for online purchases making the experience more seamless and easier while protecting Visa card users from fraud. Along with these enhancements, Visa has rebranded the name from Verified by Visa to Visa Secure.

Visa Secure is a free service available to all Members who are making online purchases with their Unity Bank Visa card. It provides an additional layer of protection for online purchases from participating retailers.

Members will receive a One-Time Password (OTP) via SMS to their mobile number to authenticate the Visa card owner and protect their account against unauthorised usage. Members are encouraged to check their mobile number is up to date to allow us to send their OTP.

You can still shop online with non-participating retailers using your Unity Bank Visa card, however, your purchases will proceed as usual without the extra layer of security offered by Visa Secure. For reassurance, look out for the Visa Secure logo displayed on participating retailer’s website with online shopping options.

We have updated our Account & Access Facility Conditions of Use document to replace Verified by Visa with Visa Secure, you can access the latest version here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 1300 65 4477.
