BB&T has partnered with Visa to provide you an extra layer of security while you shop online. Verified by Visa enables BB&T to validate your identity during online payment transactions at participating merchants. If the online merchant accepts Verified by Visa you will be prompted to enter your own previously created password in addition to your cardholder information. BB&T then validates the online transaction and lets the merchant know the results of this authentication.
When you use BB&T MasterCard online to pay for purchases from participating merchants, a pop-up box will appear asking you for your personal SecureCode. This SecureCode is a password known only to you, just like an ATM PIN, that adds an extra layer of protection to your online purchases. Verifying your SecureCode takes just seconds and then your purchase can be completed.
If you don't already have a SecureCode, you can register online.
