Dear all online merchants
For the love of god, please do not use Verifailed by Visa or Masterfail Secure Code. Maybe they make things more secure, most intelligent people seem to reckon not. Mainly it means I am unable to use my card of choice on the internet. Why? Because after months of wondering why Verified by Visa didn't work, it turns out that VfV doesn't support Firefox, and it wasn't even giving me an error message that informative. Having said that, when I finally Googled the problem it seems that other people found out about the browser incompatibility because they got an error message saying so. This implies that my bank were perhaps not capable of copy and pasting my name, address and date of birth correctly from an old database to a new, thus rendering the service impossible to use. I'm not even going to try arguing with a bank that they have my details wrong.

I had a similar problem the other day.
First site that I've found with it. Seems to be if the site runs secure-code in a pop-up and you're using firefox or chrome. If they load it in a frame in the same window it's fine.

Bit annoying though I agree.

I really don't see how this "Verified by visa" stuff works...
How do you know that that little box in to which you type one of your (hopefully) best kept passwords comes from Visa?

There's supposed to be a note there that you wrote yourself
to prove it's the real thing, but the last few times I've had them they didn't show it.

It's all a con (like chip+PIN) to push liability for fuckups/theft back onto you, rather than the bank.
