UAB Credit Cards are now 3D Secure for Online Transactions

Now online transactions on your UAB Credit Card are fully protected with 3D Secure

3D Secure is the industry’s global gold standard for online fraud prevention.

What does 3D Secure mean?

3D Secure is an enhanced security feature on your United Arab Bank Credit Card, which will protect your credit card against any unauthorized use when shopping online on any “Verified by VISA” or “MasterCard® SecureCode™” participating merchant’s sites. Most leading online merchants and sites globally and in the UAE participate in this. We have built this capability in partnership with VISA and MasterCard.

What are the benefits to me?

Complete protection: Based on the secure and authenticated 3D Secure feature, online transactions like travel bookings, shopping, bill payments, online fines & fees and other online bookings are more secure with the registered password from UAB. 

Easy enrollment process: The next time you shop at participating online merchants using your United Arab Bank Credit Card, you will be prompted to create your 3D Secure Password and your own unique “Personal Assurance Message”. Enrollment is a simple one-time process.

Simple to use: When you shop at participating online merchants after enrolment into 3D Secure, you will be prompted to enter your 3D Secure password. Once you check to see that your “Personal Assurance Message” is what you created, you will enter your password and your transaction will be completed quickly and safely.

In case you forget your permanent password, you can click the “Forgot Password” link anytime and create a new password.

Free of Charge protection for customers: An extra protection being provided to you without any charges and fees for life time of the card.

What do I need to do next?

  1. Visit any online site (travel, shopping, utility bill payment etc) to make a purchase or payment
  2. Enter your UAB credit card number.
  3. A 6 digit authentication code will be sent through SMS to your registered mobile number with UAB.
  4. Once you enters the correct authentication code, you will be requested to create a personalized password and a “Personal Assurance Message” (a personalized message which assures you that you are giving your information to UAB).
  5. The process is complete and a successful transaction screen will confirm this.
  6. Next time onwards, you will just need to check your “Personal Assurance Message” and enter your permanent password to complete an online spend transaction.
