What do PSD2 and SCA mean for you?

PSD2 – and its requirement for strong customer authentication – will have an impact on all online services and apps involving payments.

PSD2 – or the second Payment Services Directive – is EU regulation that governs how we make payments online. According to PSD2, nearly all transactions require Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), including at least two of the following:

1. Something the customer knows such as a password or PIN
2.Something the customers have like their smartphone or a hardware token
3. Something the customer is such as a fingerprint or facial recognition scan

Many services struggle to strike a balance between meeting SCA requirements and maintaining low friction in their apps to ensure high engagement from customers. PSD2-compliant authentication solutions from Signicat help.
