|Mastercard® SecureCode™ is a new service from Mastercard
and your card issuer that provides added protection when you buy
online. There is no need to get a new Mastercard or Maestro®
card. You choose your own personal Mastercard SecureCode and it
is never shared with any merchant. A private code means added
protection against unauthorized use of your credit or debit card
when you shop online.
time you pay online with your Mastercard or Maestro card, a
box pops up from your card issuer asking you for your personal
SecureCode, just like the bank does at the ATM. In seconds,
your card issuer confirms it's you and allows your purchase
to be completed.
