MasterCard SecureCode adds an additional layer of security when you shop online with participating retailers at no extra cost.
When you shop online with a participating retailer you may be asked to provide extra information. This lets you know that your purchase will be protected. The requested information is used by us for the purposes of validation and is not passed on to the retailer. This security measure gives assurance to you, the retailer and us that your card is not being used fraudulently.
Once you provide us with this information, we'll check it after which your purchase can proceed. Without the requested information, the store may not accept your payment.
Additional cardholders can also use MasterCard SecureCode (with their own card and personal information).
