We use a range of sophisticated security measures to protect you and your credit card against fraud and identity theft, plus there are things you can do to minimise the risk.
We use microchips in our credit cards, which makes it much harder for anyone to copy your card.
Contactless card technology means you can simply tap the terminal with your card, or hold the card over the terminal to make a payment. Transactions like this are protected by the same security technology as a chip card. What’s more, your card stays safely in your hands.
Your Personal Identification Number (PIN) is a four digit number, unique to you, that you use to complete transactions. From October 2014 you’ll no longer be able to sign for transactions with NZ issued Visa cards. If you don’t already have a PIN, or you’ve forgotten it, you’ll need to get a new one. Set up a PIN now.
ASB TripleCheck – an added level of security for online shopping
ASB TripleCheck is a global authentication program that works in conjunction with websites secured with Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode. When shopping at these sites you may be asked three security questions to prove your identity before you can make a purchase. These security questions relate to information only you know. You don’t need to do anything to set up ASB TripleCheck – it’s already in place.
