Updated 3D Secure bypass threadFollow

Because the old one was lame, and I wanted to tinker around on my fancy new computer, I decided to update my original thread (since it's kind of gibberish anyway, and I have gotten multiple PM's asking me to elaborate).

New and improved with fancy pants pictures.

Preface: This work around requires Firefox and the wonderfully delightful add-on Noscript. Anyone playing an MMO should be using this as their default browser if they use the internet at all on a PC with a MMO installed on it.

Firefox
Noscript

If you are unfamiliar with noscript, it basically blocks scripts from running on your computer from the internet so long as you have it set to "Forbid Scripts Globally." This of course is by no means fail safe, but it is a good thing to have installed to prevent your MMO account from getting hijacked and looted.

Make sure Firefox is set as your default browser since Playonline will open your internet browser when you get to a particular step in the process. If you already have Firefox open, it will simply open another tab.

1. Open the Playonline Viewer. Rog and a few others have mentioned being able to do this with Windower but I have had no success. It results in a crashed Windower client, at least on my old computer.


2. Follow the steps to get to the payment screen. Either by starting a new account, through the LM-21 link screen, or by updating your payment method. After entering your Name, Address, Credit Card info etc, the next screen after a screen explaining the terms of 3D Secure that pops up will have a tab that will pop open a window in your web browser. You cannot progress past this step until you either enter a VbV/SC enabled card or follow the next few steps.

This is the screen you will see to launch the browser.:

Screenshot


3. Hit the tab in POL to go to the next step in your browser.

4. After clicking next on the first page that opens in your browser, this is the page you will see:

Screenshot


Enter the expiration date and zip code for the credit card you are using and select next. I highly recommend the prepaid route, or a non-SC/VbV credit card (assuming your financial institution does not participate). Be aware that once you hit next, Square-Enix will post a temporary $1 charge onto your card. While you won't actually be assessed this fee, it will enter onto your statement temporarily as a pending charge. Be careful when using a debit card for this as you can sometimes cause inadvertent overdrafts.

5. The next screen is the important bit. If you have noscript set to block scripts globally, the next page will load with verifiedbyvisa.com and verisign.com blocked. I assume if you were using a Mastercard, securecode.com would be blocked? Your loading page will look like this:

Screenshot


and this is how they look blocked in the noscript tab on the bottom right-hand corner of firefox:

Screenshot


Until one or both of these sites are allowed, it will stay loading forever. Once you allow these two sites, the page will automatically refresh and should give you the option to go to the next screen.

The next screen should display that your 3D Secure has been verified and you can close the browser.

6. Go back to Playonline and hit next and follow the steps to create/reactivate your Playonline account.

7. ???

8. Profit.

If any of these are incorrect or if I missed a simple nuance in the process, feel free to correct me and I will update the OP. Also, I figured this would work better than necroposting the original thread.

I may have been using windower v4 when i did it, which could be why it worked with windower for me. I really don't remember, and am too lazy too check for sure.

I tried to get this thread right from memory and I really didn't want to reactivate my alt at a time I'm not putting much time into the game (Limbus and Einherjar are the only things I log in for at the moment) So it isn't completely complete. As stated in the OP, please give me the heads up on anything that needs to be changed as I haven't actually went through this process completely in 2 months.

When I tried this from Windower in the past, it always crashed when I attempted to open the external browser window for website confirmation. Since it takes so long to load individual windows, I've simply done it through the POL client to avoid having to waste two minutes or so logging back i after crash.

I've booked marked this thread for future use. :)

Reason being is I have an NA account and next year my card will expire so it's got me a little worried when I come to update the info.

For the love of something can we get over this already and move on? It's been 13 years since that South Park Episode was released and it's always been dumb when misused like now. It's been used more than Pam Anderson at this point, and was only ever funny on the show to be honest.

Considering how the meme is extremely prominent I don't see it's use dwindling anytime soon. Just because you don't like internet jargon doesn't mean everyone else should stop using it.

Been dreading trying this method for six months knowing my CC was about to expire and having no VbVisa or Secure Code options locally. Last night I noticed this updated thread and figured it was a sign to get it done. Followed the instructions on this thread to the T (it does not work quite the same for Mastercard, so I used my Visa) and it worked liked a charm! Sooooo relieved that this is done. I definitely recommend saving this thread to your favorites before it gets lost in the shuffle. And very big Thank You for this.

I would also like to add that NoScript remembers sites you have OK'd so if you have used Verisign, etc. in the past for an online purchase it will still be OK'd and you'll get stuck with an unauthorized card when going through it with SE on a different card.

Before changing your info to a card that does not have Verified by Visa, go to the NoScript Options->Whitelist and check to see that you have not OK'd verisign.com and verifiedbyvisa.com

This is very useful information for being able to play FFXI if your CC can't be used but... Couldn't RMT people see this and use it for themselves?

RMT use trial accounts. Those don't require a verified CC.

Also, they'd figure it out on their own either way. They are a crafty bunch.

In other news, apparently they have begun spamming people's telephones with the same "Fake GM" phishing schemes they use in FFXI and WoW and every other MMO-- only they use automated messaging systems to call people saying "Your bank account has been suspected of fraudulent activity, please loging to x website to give us all your personal information."

They have crossed the line, and hopefully some form of government body will step in and do something about them finally.

I just did this when I reactivated after restoring my character. Looked the same as I posted. Just make sure you don't unblock the two until you are on the loading page, other than that, I don't know.

Hello. Awesome post and i got excited about being able to rejoin FFXI just for my horrible surprise i dont get the same page in PlayOnline that allows you to open the browser and do the next stuff there this is the page i'm getting stuck before needing to provide the card information:

[IMG]http://img830.imageshack.us/img830/5891/playonlinesucks.jpg[/IMG]


Honestly i dont know what to do. They don't accept that option from non us/canadians to use normal credit cards, my country (Brazil) isnt using verified by visa or securecode yet. Some ppl in here says you can use a normal card from playstation 2 but thats totally BS. Why i can't do that from the pc?

Do i have any chance of phoning Square Enix and getting my account reactivated being from Brazil without that verified by visa crap? Im so bummed... I played this since 2004, stopped at 2009 and wanted to come back just to be treated like that.


Oh i just noticed that its only for new Playonline accounts. In my case i already have a Playonline ID and got the LM-21 due to a charge back when my CC expired. If i try that method it comes to the playonline registration code where it gets an error since i already have it installed. Is there a way to get that page for people with an existing Playonline ID already?

first of all, sorry for bumping this thread.
well, it's a sticky all right, but still...

anyway, it takes me 21 days for my dvd to arrive, and I'm goddamn stuck right in the 1st page!
damn POL registration!

I actually have prepared a prepaid Visa card, but for some reason it was ineligible payment method
Some searching sent me here, but there's some step that I can't access, specifically a window in step 5/7 to bring up my browser (the "Payer Authentication Service Instruction) page. Read some reply few post below, it seems that it won't work for new account

I even try uninstall POL viewer (in case this has something to do with POL Viewer version) to be crushed by the fact that it always update

So, unless I'm changing my card, am I screwed?

Just call Square-Enix Support on Monday (they are closed on the weekend). I had a similar problem setting up a second account and this bypass method would not work. By calling Square-Enix Support, I was able to get my card registered and everything was good to go.

Do yourself a favor before you call though. Go through the registration process and write down the EXACT error code you receive when you reach the point where you cannot proceed because your card is not Verified by Visa / Secured by Mastercard. You'll save yourself a lot of time and aggravation by having that error code when you call, as the Support staff won't help you unless you give them the exact error code (don't ask me why they need the exact error code... makes no sense to me, especially if you tell them you want to register a card that is not Verified by Visa / Secured by Mastercard... but you gotta play by their rules or they'll refuse to help you).
