Adding a PIN to my cardRegistering for Visa Entertainment

Credit card security and privacy

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.

Chip protection

We use microchips in our credit cards, which makes it much harder for anyone to copy your card.

Contactless payments

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 PIN

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.


Security tips

  • Never write down your credit card number or send it via email.
  • Choose a PIN that only you know, and don’t choose obvious numbers such as your birthday. Consider using a different PIN for different cards.
  • Never tell anyone your PIN, let anyone see you entering your PIN or let anyone else use your card.
  • Always sign your new card as soon as you get it and cut expired cards in half immediately.
  • Never use an ATM or EFTPOS terminal that’s damaged of looks like it’s been tampered with.
  • Let us know if you change your address so that replacement cards are sent to the right place, and report loss or theft immediately.
  • If you haven’t received a card you were expecting, have lost or had your card stolen contact us immediately.
  • Look for https:// at the beginning of the web address for online shopping sites and a padlock icon – these indicate that your information is encrypted.
