who can use the service?
where can I shop with the Internet security code?
You can shop with the Internet security code only at merchants who have joined the system. The number of such merchants is continuously growing. The websites of these merchants feature the following logos: “Verified by Visa” or “MasterCard SecureCode”.
If you do not see these logos on the merchant’s website, it means that it has not joined the service, so the Bank will not send an Internet security code and you will only have to give your bank card data for the purchase.
When you shop online, you as a card holder receive an individual security code in a text message that you need to provide as an identifier in addition to the CVC / CVV code.
Registration is required to use this service. You can register in the K&H e-bank or by calling the K&H TeleCenter.
