Top-of-the-line security for your online transactions

Aug 7, 2023 | General News

Our highest priority here at Guthrie County State Bank is keeping your account safe and secure with the latest security technology available. We’re pleased to share that our debit card processing partner, SHAZAM, is implementing a new security feature called Visa Secure that will go into effect August 8, 2023.

For qualifying online transactions with participating e-commerce merchants, Visa Secure puts the purchase through a risk-based authentication. As a cardholder, you’ll identify yourself with a One-Time Passcode (OTP) received via text message* that you’ll then enter on a checkout screen with SHAZAM’s logo. Voila! Your purchase is safely verified.

If an invalid OTP is entered in the checkout screen, the transaction will not be authenticated. After three (3) consecutive invalid OTPs are entered into the checkout screen, your card will be blocked. If it really is you trying to make the purchase, don’t worry, you’ll be able to unblock your card by contacting us.

If you have any questions about Visa Secure, please call Guthrie Center at 641-332-2218 or Panora at 641-755-2400.
