Strong customer authentication (SCA)
At Easygenerator we follow the best practices for security and privacy, especially when it’s about the privacy of your data and the security of your payments.
As of September 14, 2019, a new European regulation for more secure online payments (PSD2 + SCA) comes into force. In preparation for this, we’ve introduced an extra layer of security to the checkout process and payments in Easygenerator. You’ll now find a step called ‘3D Secure 2.0’ added to the payment confirmation process.
3D Secure 2.0 is a security protocol that helps to prevent fraud in online credit and debit card transactions. You may have heard of programs such as Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code and may already be familiar with the process when your bank asks you to verify your identity by entering an authentication code (in most cases, a single-use security code that is sent to you by SMS on your mobile phone). These payment security services are based on 3D Secure – the previous version of 3D Secure 2.0.
The new version brings a new approach to authentication through a wider range of data, biometric authentication, and an improved online experience.
We are also making sure that your existing subscriptions will stay active even when the new regulation comes into force. Please note that you may receive a notification from Easygenerator to confirm your subscription and complete the extra verification step. Please rest assured that this process does not involve any extra payments being taken.
If you received a notification from our team and have any questions regarding the new regulation or the new secure process for payments, don’t hesitate to contact our Finance department at [email protected].
