Secure payments

Good news, we have enhanced our Ulster Bank Secure service (In association with verified by Visa). When shopping online you will no longer need to enter a password, most transactions will simply go straight through after being checked by the bank.

For some transactions you may be asked to enter a one time passcode online which we will send to you.  You can select whether you wish this passcode to be sent to your mobile, email address or via a voicemail to your landline.

Ulster Bank Secure provides you with additional protection when shopping online at participating merchants.

To ensure you can complete online purchases quickly it is essential that you keep your contact details up to date, so if verification is requested we can send you a one time passcode.
