Both schemes work in the same way by using personal passwords, set by you the cardholder, to add an extra layer of protection when you shop online. The instructions that you see on the pages within our site are coming direct from your card issuing bank (eg, Halifax, Barclays, Sainsbury's) and any information that you submit on these authentication screens are securely passed to your card issuing bank, no information will be captured, stored or viewed on any debenhams.com system.
