Verified by Visa®

Verified by Visa is the easy way to enjoy added security for all your online M&T Debit Card purchases. M&T and Visa are pleased to offer you this great service and enhanced security at no additional charge.


Verified by Visa is a service that lets you add a personal password to your existing M&T Debit Card.  You get added safety and the reassurance that only you can use your registered M&T Debit Card online.

How Verified by Visa Works
Online shopping is quick and easy when using your Verified by Visa activated card.  Here’s how it works:

  • Just shop at any participating Verified by Visa online store. Get a complete list of all participating merchants.
  • While completing a purchase, you’ll be asked to enter in your Visa card details as usual.
  • When you submit your order, the Verified by Visa window will appear (shown right).
  • Simply enter your personal Verified by Visa password, then click submit.
  • A confirmation message will appear, and your purchase will be completed.

How to Register
Registration only takes a short time. Once your card is activated, your card number will be recognized whenever you purchase at participating online stores. You'll enter your password in the Verified by Visa window, your identity will be verified, and the transaction will be completed. In stores that are not yet participating in Verified by Visa, your card will continue to work as usual.
