Can DCV help you find love?

To help combat the rise in CNP fraud, a byproduct of the meteoric rise of eCommerce, we recently launched our Dynamic Code Verification [DCV] system, a solution that ensures safe transactions through using a continuously evolving security code on the back of the card or smartphone. Every 20 minutes, the three-digit code changes. When making a purchase, a user simply needs to enter the current security code visible on their card or smartphone at that moment.

The solution is already proving to be very effective in combatting CNP fraud. However, we’ve come to learn the wonders of DCV do not stop there; a DCV card or mobile application can do much more than just ensure safe eCommerce transactions. The random number generation feature of their solutions the cards has potential usefulness as a means to solving problems, such as helping decide who buys the next round of drinks, and even helping choose a dating partner! For more details, see our top three alternative uses of DCV videos below.

  1. I feel it does not really serve the product. Gives the feeling it is so useless that cardholders have to invent a weird way to use it, just like “I pay for it so let’s find a usage…”

    1. That’s a fair point. We like to think these applications are a bonus, rather than the core purpose of the technology, which – as we’ve said recently – will be a major weapon in the battle against CNP fraud.
