What is Mastercard SecureCode ?

MasterCard SecureCode enhances your current MasterCard credit or debit card or Switch/Maestro card with a secret code to protect against unauthorized use of your card when you shop online.
Once you've registered and created your own SecureCode password, you will be automatically prompted by your card issuer to type in your SecureCode password each time you make a purchase at participating online stores/retailers. Your SecureCode will then be confirmed by your card issuer to complete your purchase. Correctly entering your SecureCode during a purchase confirms that you are the authorized cardholder.
