After three successful years of learning more about how organizations implement, use and benefit from Consumer Authentication, the fourth installment of this annual survey seeks to continue measuring not just how many organizations support these programs, but how they use or implement them and what are their results. One of the priorities of this annual study is to keep track of several awareness, use and satisfaction metrics around Consumer Authentication services as these programs continue to evolve.

Take the 2017 Consumer Authentication Survey

The first three years of the Consumer Authentication Survey showed several strong signs regarding education and awareness around these programs. In each of the three years of the Consumer Authentication Survey thus far, use and support of these programs has increased while the level of sophistication amongst merchants using Consumer Authentication has shown measurable improvements as well. More organizations are using Consumer Authentication selectively, and considering a larger variety of signals and transaction characteristics to decide when to present authentication. This observed increase in awareness of and use of Selective Presentment is correlated with a reduction in merchants who use these programs reporting any negative impacts on sales conversion or the user experience.

Hoping to continue the success of the first three years of the Consumer Authentication Survey by providing valuable findings and results, the fourth annual edition will continue to measure the changes in use, support, satisfaction and results regarding the use Consumer Authentication in eCommerce. EMVco plans to release the final 3DS 2.0 specification by the end of 2016, which seeks to increase support for in-app and mobile purchases, support authentication within digital wallets and provide several other features and enhancements.

Now is as critical of a time as ever to collect feedback and learn from the experiences and sentiments of industry stakeholders as it pertains to Consumer Authentication. Whether or not an organization uses or supports any of these programs today, their perspectives on the state of Consumer Authentication currently and what they expect from it in the near future are highly valued and can have an impact on the payment and risk industries

Please be sure to take the Consumer Authentication Survey this week. All who complete the survey will be entered in up to five drawings to win a brand new Amazon Echo speaker, and will also receive an advance copy of the Consumer Authentication Survey Report before the full public release in early 2017.
