To further protect cardholders from fraudulent eCommerce transactions, Bahrain Islamic Bank (BisB) enforces the 3D Secure Service on any online transaction made using BisB Debit or Credit Cards.

3D Secure is an authenticated payment system to improve the security of online transactions. The objective of this service is to provide a safe and secure online payment experience using a One Time Password (OTP) sent by BisB to cardholders through SMS. Cardholders will then have to use this password to securely complete their transaction.

Participating 3D Secure retailers are identified through the “MasterCard SecureCode” or the “Verified by Visa (VBV)”.

How it works

Once the OTP is correctly entered when making a purchase at a participating online merchant, you confirm that you are the authorized cardholder and your purchase will successfully be completed.

How to benefit from this service?

The OTP is sent to the registered mobile number of the cardholder at the Bank. Cardholders are required to ensure that all contacts listed under their card account are updated.
