What is 3D Secure?

3D Secure (also known as Verified by Visa & MasterCard secure code) acts like a chip 'n' pin when you are making payments on-line and protects you by asking for 3 digits from your secret password.

3D secure allows your card issuer the ability to fully authenticate cardholders data during the on-line purchase, reducing the likelihood of fraudulent usage.

On-line payment security is treated with the highest priority by Runnymede Borough Council to give you peace of mind when making payments to us.

3D Secure version 2 will be introduced shortly allowing the card issuers to ask for further security information, something that only you will know. This can include a secret password, iris or finger print scans, answers to security questions or call safe passcodes sent to your phone or email. Runnymede Borough Council will move to introduce this when it becomes live.
