No financial information required with WU® Pay.
We all want to prevent identity theft and maintain online privacy. You may worry about having your identity stolen when you give out your banking or credit card information, but when you use WU Pay you don't have to worry about that. We do not ask for your financial information.
Just say no to entering financial information online.
Some days identity thieves have it easy. People give them all the information they need to cause havoc, and commit fraud. Other days for them are hard. Those are the days when people have paid using an option which does not require financial information.
When you pay with WU Pay, you don’t provide any financial information to the store, or to us. Instead, you pay the bill at your own bank’s website. The money is transferred directly from your bank account.
You will never be asked for:
- Your social security number
- Your bank account number
- Your credit card number
All of the above can be used by identity thieves, so isn’t it better that you keep them to yourself?
Stay in control of your money.
WU Pay does not require your financial information, and does not take you directly to your bank’s web site, in order to protect you against phishing attacks. The result is a payment solution that does not compromise your security and ensures you stay in control of your money.
Pay at your existing online bank.
When you log-in directly to your online bank’s web site, you are authenticating with them directly. This authentication (which really just means they are checking to make sure you are who you say you are) means that no one except you should be able to get into your online bank account.
Banks have spent billions of dollars to create authentication processes and banking systems. Over the last few years, many banks have implemented double authentication to make it even more difficult for hackers to break into their systems.
Your banking information remains confidential with your online bank. WU Pay ensures that you deal directly with your own bank, instead of with anyone else who you don’t know. This allows you to take advantage of all the security features of your bank when you shop online.
