Online shopping secured with Visa secure and EFTPOS secure

At Australian Military Bank protecting your transactions online is one of our key priorities. One way we do this is by preventing the unauthorised use of your card. During a purchase from desktop, mobile or other digital device, you may be guided through an extra check to verify your identity such as a one time password (OTP). This helps us ensure you’re protected from fraud and can safely and securely make purchases online. 

As an AMB cardholder, your transactions are secured. Visa and EFTPOS recently enhanced its security for online purchases making the experience more seamless and easy while protecting you from fraud.
