UlsterBank Secure

Working with Verified by Visa

One of the great things about Internet shopping is
the extra time it gives you to enjoy life more offline.

Ulster Bank Secure, provided in association with Verified by Visa, protects your card against unauthorised use when you shop online at participating retailers. By allowing you to use a password to authenticate payments, this ensures that only you the genuine cardholder is making the purchase, giving you a greater peace of mind.

So, how does it work?

It's simple. You begin by registering your own private password. When you shop and check out at participating online merchants, you are automatically prompted to enter some random characters from the password - this verifies you as the genuine cardholder, just like entering a PIN* at the ATM.

How do I register?

The new service is absolutely free and once you have registered you can start making secure purchases using your Ulster Bank Cards. Register at If you do not register here, retailers may ask you to register your card whilst completing a purchase: the process is very similar. If you do not register at all your transaction may be declined as part of our anti-fraud policy.
