NBG is the first bank to offer the new Mastercard® Identity Check™ service for secure purchases exclusively to its debit cardholders.
What is the Mastercard® Identity Check™ service?
Mastercard® Identity Check™ is a new service which provides maximum security in online purchases with debit cards.
The new service requires for every purchase at a participating merchant that you enter an One Time Password (OTP) which you will receive by SMS to your mobile device or email you've registered with the Bank.
How can you participate in Mastercard® Identity Check™?
In order to benefit from maximum security in your online purchases, NBG provides the Mastercard® Identity Check™ service automatically for your debit card, without any registration required.
Thus, you will be able to use the new Mastercard® Identity Check™ service, entering an One Time Password (OTP) in every purchase at a participating merchant.
If you also hold an NBG credit or prepaid card registered with the Mastercard® SecureCode™ service, you will continue to use for such cards the existing service and enter your password for online purchases at participating merchants. For further information click here.
At which merchants will I use the new service?
Participating merchants display the Mastercard® Identity Check™ or Mastercard® SecureCode™ logos on their homepage. At these merchants you can make from now on your purchases with NBG debit cards, by entering an OTP.
*The service includes the following NBG cards: Debit Mastercard, Debit Mastercard Business, Ethnocash Plus Maestro, Agro-carta (Karta tou agroti) Debit Mastercard.
