3D Secure

Do you use your Danske card online?
Change is coming 

Starting this summer, get ready for different checks, not just a text.

  • Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) is being rolled out across Europe this year for card payments online.
  • It is a new way to give you greater protection when you are shopping online with your corporate card or debit card.
  • When using your card online, transactions with SCA will require two factors for authentication – a one-time passcode sent to your mobile, along with a unique password that you create.


To continue using your Danske Mastercard or Debit Card to shop online you will have to:

  • 1) Register your mobile phone number with Danske Bank 

    Either via your Administrator on District (Danske Bank's online platform)


    By phoning Danske Bank Card Support on +353 1 484 3704.

  • 2) Receive letter from Danske Bank in the post 

    Follow the instructions on the letter you received from Danske Bank via your company
  • 3) Create your unique password*

    Go to 
    Use the customer number and temporary PIN in the letter to create your unique password

    *Important: The unique password you create should be kept secure, as any replacement temporary password may need to be issued by post, potentially causing significant delay to your ability to complete a transaction online.

  • 4) Make secure purchases online using two-factors 

    Using your Danske Mastercard or Debit Card, you can now authenticate your online purchases using your unique password, along with the one-time passcode sent to your mobile number
