Some websites I place orders on now support an extra step, where my bank sends a one-time code to my mobile phone which I then enter to confirm the transaction. I don't know how widespread this is or what the determining factors are; I've seen it used with cards issued by various banks and via both Visa and MasterCard.

Victor, just for the neutrality (pun intended): the technical articles on wikipedia might be reasonable (but that's not a given), while e.g. historical or national ones tend to get ugly and distorted by a strangely constant factor. You might be interested in [[VP:ISK256]] (translit back to Cyrillic) on ru.wikipedia.org.

the determining factor is if the website has opted to implement such a feature.
