MasterCard® SecureCode™ is a new service from MasterCard and your card issuer that provides additional protection when you buy online. To start using it, there is no need to get a new MasterCard or Maestro® card – you can use your personal card. You choose your own personal MasterCard SecureCode and it is never shared with any merchant. A private code means additional protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card when you shop online.
Every time you pay online with your MasterCard, a box pops up automatically from your card issuer asking you for your personal SecureCode, and you only need to enter it. This procedure is very much like entering your PIN-code at the ATM. Within seconds, your card issuer confirms it’s you and allows your purchase to be completed safely.
To activate MasterCard SecureCode for your Visa card, or to learn more, please contact the financial institution that issued your card.
