Why do I need PINsentry?

The Payment Services Directive 2 (or PSD2 for short) is a piece of European Union (EU) legislation that aims to make banking safer, more transparent and innovative. The legislation includes Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), which requires you to confirm it's you when you pay for things. PINsentry is one of the options to help verify your identity, giving you greater security and peace of mind.
