That's good to hear @annesolano - thanks for letting us know. Smiley Happy


As technology advances and fraudsters become more cunning in their ways, it's important that security is taken very seriously.

Information about Directive (EU) 2015/2366 on payment services including date of entry into force and a link to the summary can be found here:


The directive came into force in January 2016, was incorporated into national law in January 2018 and applies from 14 September 2019.


Happy reading!

Yes, great idea to link a specific mobile number to all buying, then every number becomes a risk. Was verify by visa not good enough? Where is the security on a mobile phone where you don't even have access to the operating system? Oh no I forgot this is so "they" can keep you secure...

That's correct, the card issuer will ask for a more secure way to authenticate but the giffgaff end of the process will remain more or less the same.
