How Verified by Visa Works
When you enable Verified by Visa you will be asked to choose a password for your Check Card. The only time you have to use the password is when you use the card at an online merchant which partners with Verified by Visa. If a cyber criminal were to somehow get a card number, they will not be able to use it at a participating online merchant without the Verified by Visa password which only you know.
