How We’re Making Online Shopping More Secure

3D Secure 2

Here at Curve, we’re on a mission to make your online shopping experience as secure as possible. Today, we’ve introduced a new feature to help make that happen…

So, what’s new with your Curve card?

We’ve officially launched 3D Secure 2 for safer payments.

What’s 3D Secure authentication?

Good place to start. 3D Secure is the security measure you go through when making online payments. As part of our mission to make your spending experience safer, we’ve launched 3DS 2 – the new and improved version of 3DS.

Here’s what that means for you:

  • You’re better protected against fraud
  • You get a secure checkout experience

How does it work?

When making an online payment with your Curve card, you’ll get a notification asking you to log into the app to authenticate your payment.

You won’t have to authenticate every single online transaction. The prompt will just appear for purchases which we think need to be verified. It’s also worth noting that not all merchants are using 3DS yet.

When prompted, log in using your fingerprint, FaceID or password. Once complete, you’ll be good to go and complete your purchase.

We’re keeping everything inside the Curve app to make your experiences as seamless as possible.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we want to let you know that we’re here to make your online shopping experience as secure as possible. Implementing 3D Secure 2 is a step toward this, but we’re not quite done yet. Watch this space for future updates.

In the meantime, why not try it for yourself by downloading Curve?
