How can I register for the new 3-D Secure process or use it with a partner card?

The new 3-D Secure process allows you to confirm online shopping on your mobile – it's easiest with the UBS Access App. Please select whether you own a credit card with or without a UBS account.

UBS Credit Card with a UBS account

If you have both a UBS Credit Card and a UBS account, you can choose between the following options to use the new 3-D Secure process.

To confirm your online shopping with the app, you first have to activate it. To do so, you need a smartphone, the UBS Access App and your Digital Banking contract number.

  1. Download the UBS Access App onto your smartphone.
  2. Open the Access App and enter your E-Banking contract number.
  3. Follow the instructions.

After you've successfully activated the app, you can use 3-D Secure immediately at participating online shops.

Notice about push notifications

Make sure that push notifications are enabled for the Access App in your smartphone’s settings. Otherwise you won’t receive any push notifications and will have to open the Access App manually to confirm a payment.

You can also use the new 3-D Secure process with an SMS code. To do so, you must register your phone number in E-Banking. When you shop online, you’ll receive an SMS code with which you can confirm the card payment.

UBS Credit Card without a UBS account

If you have a UBS Credit Card but no UBS account, you can choose between the following options to use the new 3-D Secure process.

To confirm your online shopping with the app, you must first activate it. You’ll need a smartphone and the UBS Access App.

  1. Download the UBS Access App onto your smartphone.
  2. Open the Access App and, under the contract number field, select “I don’t have access to Digital Banking yet.”
  3. Follow the instructions.

You can also use the new 3-D Secure process with an SMS code. To do so, you must link your mobile phone number with your credit card.

Once this is completed successfully, you’ll receive an SMS code to confirm any card payments you make when shopping online.

Note: You can only track all your card transactions in Digital Banking and receive notifications about debits made to your card in Mobile Banking if you use the UBS Access App.
