National Bank of Greece (Cyprus) Ltd, aiming to provide even greater security at online card purchases, upgraded the customer identification procedure when performing online card transactions!
The new procedure is carried out through the Bank’s new mobile application, NBG CY 3DS.
The NBG CY 3DS mobile app is provided free of charge to all National Bank of Greece (Cyprus) cardholders.
It is a 3D Secure Authentication solution that allows you to conduct e-commerce transactions with strict security and with a simplified authentication process, with the help of biometric recognition (digital fingerprint or face recognition).
The NBG CY 3DS app for smartphone or tablet devices will replace the previous authentication method which is done by sending a One Time Password via SMS
If you don’t have a smart smartphone or tablet device, you’ll be able to verify your identity when you trade online by the One Time Password via SMS method
Through the NBG CY 3DS application, your online card transactions will now be verified using Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). Your identity is strongly verified when performing online card transactions, by applying the new EMV 3DS security protocol. This ensures your online card transactions and significantly reduces the risk of fraud
Verification of your electronic card transactions is done using biometrics or a personal identification number (PIN), in the NBG CY 3DS application
Using the NBG CY 3DS app, your identity is now easily verified. You can purchase securely online without having to remember large and complex login passwords
The use of the application is mandatory in electronic card payments within the European Economic Area
The application complies with EU Payment Services Directive 2015/2366 (PSD2) and the certified MasterCard 3D-Secure v.2.0 which ensures both a comprehensive user experience and the highest security standards for online card payments
To complete your transactions using Strong Customer Authentication, simply download for free the NBG CY 3DS application:
Push notification or OTP is for a specific transaction, so every time you make a new online transaction to merchants participating in 3D Secure, you will be sent a new notification or a new OTP
Your smartphone or tablet must be connected to the internet when using the NBG CY 3DS application
When you do business with merchants who are not yet participating in 3DSecure internet transaction services, your card will still work without the need to use the NBG CY 3DS application
If you have set up a standing payment order to an e-commerce merchant, you do not need strong identification every time a payment is made. Your identity is verified with strong customer identification only the first time you pay using your card
