Verified by Visa
Added Security for Your Online Transactions
Visa® provides reassurance that only you can use your Visa card when shopping or ordering online. SF Fire’s Verified by Visa is the easy new way to enjoy added security for all your online Visa card purchases. SF Fire and Visa are pleased to offer you this great service at no additional charge.
What is Verified by Visa?
Verified by Visa is free to SF Fire members.
The service uses personal passwords or identity information to help protect Visa cards against unauthorized use. Once activated, your Visa card number cannot be used for online purchases without your personal password.
Why should I register for Verified by Visa?
Verified by Visa and the network of participating vendors provides an extra level of protection for online shopping. Of course, SF Fire always protects its cardholders against unauthorized use, but the Verified by Visa service helps to prevent unauthorized use online before it can happen.
How Does it Work?
|Step 1 – Fill out the order information|
When you make a purchase online, fill in the information required by the vendor as you would normally.
Be sure you have selected your SF Fire Visa credit card as the payment option.
Click on the submission button to begin processing the order.
|Step 2 – Verified by Visa screen|
If the vendor is participating in the Verified by Visa program (and you have signed up for it) you will see a second screen appear requesting your validation information.
Enter your password to confirm your identity. This will return you to the vendor’s page.
