MasterCard® SecureCode™

Additional Protection for Online Transactions

To improve the security of online debit and credit card transactions, Central Bank has teamed up with MasterCard® and Arcot Systems™ to provide MasterCard® SecureCode™.

SecureCode is easy to use:

  1. Just like a PIN code is required for in-person transactions, a pop-up window will display when you make an online purchase at a participating merchant for you to enter your password.
  2. After you enter your password, the information is authenticated and then the transaction is submitted to your financial institution for authorization.
  3. By activating SecureCode, your card cannot be used at a participating online merchant without authentication by an authorized user of your account.

Get Started with MasterCard® SecureCode™

  • You can enroll your card by either visiting Shazam's MasterCard SecureCode site or at a participating online merchant where you’ll be prompted to create your own SecureCode prior to checkout.
  • When this happens, a window from SHAZAM will appear and you will be guided through the simple enrollment.
  • Once you’ve created your private SecureCode, you must then use it for future purchases at participating online merchants.

Please Note: SecureCode is a free service, however, when you enroll your debit card, you may notice a $1 authorization charge by Arcot Systems on your account. This is a temporary charge to verify that your account is valid and that the information you entered is correct. The $1 charge will be reversed within 24-48 hours.

If you have any questions about how to create or use your SecureCode, please take a look at SHAZAM's frequently asked questions about MasterCard SecureCode or contact Central Bank for more information.
