Online shopping is more secure than ever
When making online purchases using your payment card, you are increasingly asked to confirm them. The easiest way to do this is with the Nordea Codes app.
Many online stores may have asked you to confirm your card purchases recently. The Payment Services Directive (PSD2) instructs card issuers to ensure that, when a card is used to pay online, the cardholder’s identity is strongly authenticated. In practice, a card issuer must offer the cardholder a chance to perform this strong authentication.
At Nordea, strong authentication means using the code app or code calculator, which ensure that paying with a card is more secure than ever before. You can be certain that your payment is secure if you see one of these logos when confirming the payment: Mastercard Identity Check (previously Mastercard SecureCode) or Visa Secure (previously Verified by Visa).
Activate our secure Nordea Codes app
By the end of next year, we will discontinue other authentication methods used for obtaining additional confirmation for card payments, namely a password by SMS and solutions based on a fixed password.
Even if you’re not a Nordea customer, you can obtain our code app this year for authenticating your identity when making card payments online.
If you can’t activate the code app, please call Nordea Customer Service to ensure that you can make secure online purchases.
