3D-Secure technology has been developed by VISA and Mastercard, and aims to identify cardholders for online payments. The identification process is much the same as that used at ATMs and is based on a personal code/password being used in conjunction with the purchase. This technology means that the cardholders can be certain that their cards are not being used by unauthorised individuals.
