3-D SECURE - AMERICAN EXPRESS SAFEKEY®
SECURE AND EASY ONLINE SHOPPING
For American Express Corporate Cardmembers
3-D Secure is an internationally recognized security standard for online credit card payments. With American Express the 3-D Secure technology is called "American Express SafeKey®". With online purchases from SafeKey partners (identifiable by the SafeKey logo on the website) you are automatically requested to enter a TAN. This cardholder identification therefore provides additional security.
HOW DOES SAFEKEY WORK?
SafeKey offers you additional security, which is only used with online merchants who have been verified by American Express: Whenever you make an online purchase with these merchants, you will be automatically taken through the registration process the first time you register. All you need is the following:
- The actual card
- A valid email address and/or
- Valid cell phone number
Once you are registered, you are sent a TAN to confirm this transaction. You receive this TAN as an SMS and/or email to the cell phone number or email address that you provided when you registered.
Please make sure that your email address and cell phone number are always up to date.
You can update your contact details when you check out your purchase with a participating SafeKey merchant in just a few simple steps. Your TAN is then sent to the new contact details in real time.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF SAFEKEY?
- Increased security for online shopping
- Verification by SMS and/or email
- Easy, effortless registration and use
