Mastercard® Secure Code: A quick and simple way to add online safety
Mastercard® Secure Code is a unique service that uses personal passwords to help our members protect Mastercard® card numbers against unauthorized use. Once you activate your card, no one else can use your Mastercard® card number at any participating online stores without your personal password. Mastercard® Secure Code is available only for select Mastercard® cards from participating financial institutions.
Once your Mastercard® card is activated, your card number will be recognized whenever you purchase at participating online stores. You’ll enter your password in the Mastercard® Secure Code window, your identity will be verified, and the transaction will be completed. In stores that are not yet participating in Mastercard® Secure Code, your Mastercard® card will continue to work as usual. Your Mastercard® Secure Code password helps to ensure that only you can use your Mastercard® card number to buy online.
