Additional Protection for Your Debit Card
Protect Your Debit Card
Verified by Visa® is free to Visa cardholders and was developed to help prevent unauthorized use of Visa cards online. It protects Visa cards with personal passwords, giving cardholders reassurance that only they can use their Visa cards online.
Once your Debit card is activated, your card number will be recognized whenever it's used at participating online stores. A Verified by Visa window will automatically appear and your Visa card issuer will ask for your password. You'll enter your password to verify your identity and complete your purchase.
At stores that aren't participating in Verified by Visa yet, your Visa card will continue to work as usual.
Please note: If you do not register your Firefighters First Visa Debit card, you will not be able to make an online purchase with retailers that participate in the Verified by Visa merchant program. Protect yourself by enrolling today.
