What is MasterCard Secure Code?

MasterCard Secure Code is an additional layer of security for online shopping aimed to protect your Wirex card from unauthorised usage, also known as 3-D Secure. MasterCard Secure Code is a private code you setup for your card either during the first time merchant asked for it, or on MasterCard site. It is also an alternative to transaction confirmation by SMS.

NOTE: MasterCard Secure Code IS NOT your card's PIN-code. Do not try to use it when you are asked for Secure Code.

How to setup your MasterCard Secure Code:

  • Browse MasterCard Secure Code page > click Click Here in Learn More section > Accept MasterCard Terms and Conditions.
  • Enter your Card Number > Continue. If your card is already registered for Master Card Secure Code, you can either re-register it or reset your code (if you remember the old one).
  • Enter your Date of birth, Last Name and your Wirex card CVV > Continue.
  • On Step 4 set your (new) MasterCard Secure Code and Personal greeting > Register. Ensure the code consists of numbers and letters and has 6-10 characters, and the greeting is something meaningful for you.
    NOTE: Do not use your Secure Code in your Greeting.
  • That's it. Your registration is completed. Your Wirex card is now protected by MasterCard Secure Code.

How to reset your MasterCard Secure Code:

  • Browse MasterCard Secure Code page > enter your card number and MasterCard Secure Code in Login to Manage your account section > Submit.
  • In Update Profile section you can change your Secure Code. Enter the new Code > Submit.
  • Your Secure Code is reset!

How to cancel your MasterCard Secure Code:

  • Browse MasterCard Secure Code page > enter your card number and MasterCard Secure Code in Login to Manage your account section > Submit.
  • In Cancel Service section you can cancel MasterCard Secure Service for your Wirex card. Click Submit.
  • That's it! Your card is no longer protected by MasterCard Secure Code. It is still possible some merchants will require you to set MasterCard Secure Code for your Wirex card.

If you are asked for MasterCard secure code during your online shopping and you do not know/remember it, simply click on Forgot your Secure Code? link. You will need to re-register your card in MasterCard Secure Code.
