How Do I Recover My Visa Account?

Visa is a financial services company that issues credit cards through partnered financial institutions. If you've forgotten the username or password to your Visa account, they are easy to recover. If, however, you need to recover access to the account of the institution you got your Visa card from, you'll need to follow that institution's recovery procedures.

If you have a Visa account and can no longer log into it, you may need to recover your username and/or password. Keep reading to learn how.

An Important Note

Although famous for its credit cards, Visa is not actually a credit card company; it's a financial services company in the business of facilitating electronic fund transfers via its credit cards. It doesn't issue credit cards directly to customers. Instead, it partners with banks and other financial institutions that offer Visa cards to their customers. Each financial institution that issues Visa credit has its own procedures for recovering lost usernames and passwords. If you need to recover access to an account for the institution that issued your Visa card, you need to follow the procedure for that financial institution.
