I don't shop online, why do I need a Verified by Visa (VbV) passcode?

Verified by Visa (VbV) protects your account(s) from unauthorised use. If a VbV passcode is registered, it significantly reduces the chances of you becoming a victim of online fraud. We register all of our customers' accounts for VbV to ensure you are protected.
