Once you activate your Visa card in the Verified by Visa service you will be asked to create your own password. Every time you shop online you will be prompted to provide your password as part of the checkout process. This will protect your card from fraudulent online use. Purchases will only be authorised once your password has been entered into the Verified by Visa screen. You will also be required to create your own Personal Message. This will appear on the screen that follows and prompts you for your password. Every time you see your own Personal Message on screen you will know that you are communicating with The Mutual.
