Visa Secure

Protection when shopping online

Community First offers Visa Secure - an easy-to-use fraud prevention program that confirms your identity when you shop online with any participating online merchant.

All existing and new Visa cards are automatically registered, joining millions of Visa cardholders, for this free service. Throughout the world a growing number of merchants offer Visa Secure.

How does it work?

Each time you make an online purchase with a participating merchant, the Visa Secure program assesses the risk level of the transaction. Certain activity may seem out of the ordinary – maybe because it’s a high dollar value transaction, or a retailer you’ve never bought with before.

In these instances you may be asked to confirm some simple personal details – like date of birth, mother's maiden name or address details – so we can be sure the card isn't being used without your permission. Your privacy is our priority – this information is used only to verify your identity.

You can read more about Visa security on their website.
