How does it work?
When you use your credit card to make a purchase on a 3D Secure site, a separate screen will pop up displaying your “personal message”. You will then be able to validate the payment by entering the single-use code delivered to the medium of your choice:

You can only register one LuxTrust Token and one LuxTrust Mobile certificate for each card.
