SKB-Bank implements 3D Secure verification technology for online banking

SKB-Bank announced on Wednesday that it has implemented its new 3D Secure verification system for its online banking customers and bank cardholders.

The 3D Secure system requires a brief identity confirmation step before a customer can make a check card payment or a banking transaction online, according to Ural Business Consulting.

When a bank customer uses their bank card to purchase something online, for example, they will be sent a verification code in a text message to their mobile phone. They must enter the code before the online purchase is verified and the funds are withdrawn.

Similarly, if a customer choses to use their SKB-Bank card in a retail store, the customer will receive a text message the first time the card is swiped by the cashier. The customer will show the text message to the cashier to complete the transaction, Ural Business Consulting reports.
