How to find your credit card security code

Where your credit card security code is located
WHERE TO FIND YOUR
CARD'S SECURITY CODE
Every credit card has a security code used to help verify that the card is in your possession. Here are the codes' locations on American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa cards:
 It doesn't matter what you call them -- a card security code (CSC), card verification value (CVV or CV2), card verification code (CVC) or even a card code verification (CCV) -- those three or four digits provide an additional measure of credit card security when you make purchases online or by mail order. But, finding them can be confusing, especially if you've never made an online purchase with that specific card. 

The card security code "is one in a series of steps that merchants can take to prevent fraud and verify that the order is being placed by the actual cardholder," says Matthew Towson, senior manager of community affairs for Discover Financial Services, adding that in most cases, the only way for a cardholder to provide the security code is to actually be in possession of the card.

Where you find the security code depends on the card. If you have a Visa, MasterCard or Discover, turn the card over. In the signature box or just to the right of it, you will see a series of digits. However long the series, the final three digits are the security code.

American Express cardholders can find their security code on the front of the card, either to the left or right of the embossed 15-digit card number. These four digits are printed in black, not embossed.

Even as card issuers switch over to chip-equipped cards, security codes will still be printed and used the same way they are now, according to Doug Johnson, vice president of risk management policy for the American Bankers Association.

"For consumers who are conducting online transactions, it's still an important security measure to have," he said. "As we move to chip cards the goal is not to move away from those other important security measures that help protect consumers."

If you can't read the security code for any reason, call the issuing financial institution on the customer service number listed on the back of your credit card. Each financial institution will have its own guidelines for how to handle illegible security codes, but it may require reissuing the card.

Since the security code is a safety feature, just like your PIN, you will want to protect it. Generally, as long as you have a secure connection, you can safely provide it during online transactions.

 The merchant is prohibited, for security purposes, from storing the code. However, never provide it to anyone, whether you know them or not, in an email (email is unsecured communication).

 Once someone else has your security code, card number and card expiration, it will appear to an online merchant that the someone else, not you, is actually in possession of the card.


cvv number

Visa®, Mastercard®, and Discover® cardholders:
Turn your card over and look at the signature box. You should see either the entire 16-digit credit card number or
just the last four digits followed by a special 3-digit code. This 3-digit code is your CVV number / Card Security Code.

cid
American Express® cardholders:

Look for the 4-digit code printed on the front of your card just above and to the right of your main credit card number. This 4-digit code is your Card Identification Number (CID). The CID is the four-digit code printed just above the Account Number.

Card Fraud & Security FAQs

Q: I received an email/phone call from MasterCard about my account but it appears to be a scam or a phishing email. What do I do?
A: MasterCard will never solicit personal or account information from a cardholder and we suspect that the information you received is fraudulent. Consumers should always safeguard their personal information and refrain from responding to suspicious email/phone scams. If you suspect fraud on your account, please contact your issuing bank immediately to report it. We would appreciate if you could forward the original email to stopit@mastercard.com so that we may investigate.
Q: Someone called to offer a lower rate on my MasterCard but it seems to be a scam
A: Please be advised that MasterCard does not attempt to contact individuals to request personal information, including credit or debit card account information. If you receive an unsolicited phone call, email, text message, or social media request from an individual claiming to be a MasterCard representative: DO NOT RESPOND. MasterCard cardholders should always safeguard their personal information and not respond to any suspicious emails or other inquiries. If you are a victim of a phishing attack and believe your account information may have been compromised, please contact the bank or financial institution that issued your credit or debit card to report the incident.
Q: I believe fraudulent purchases were made on my MasterCard card account
A: If you believe that a transaction posted to your MasterCard card account is fraudulent you should immediately contact the financial institution that issued your MasterCard account and report your concerns.
Typically, there is a customer service number for your financial institution on the back of each card that you can call. You can always contact the MasterCard Assistance Center at 1-800-307-7309 or 'Collect' by dialing 1-636-722-7111.
Q: I know who has committed fraud on my MasterCard account
A: If you believe that you possess information about a person who has committed fraud by using your MasterCard without your permission, please contact the financial institution that issued your card. Financial institution contact information can be located on the back of your card, or on a monthly billing statement.
Q: I believe someone has applied for a MasterCard card in my name
A: Since MasterCard does not issue MasterCard cards we are not able to tell you if an account was opened in your name. You should contact immediately the financial institution that issued the account, and you :
  • Notify the financial institution and cancel the card account
  • Notify each of the three reporting companies about the identity theft so your report can be annotated properly
  • Even if you do not see an unusual creditor on their report you should formally write to advise of them of the situation
The credit reporting companies that may be contacted using the following web addresses:
Equifax         www.Equifax.com
Trans Union  www.TransUnion.com
Experian       www.Experian.com
If you do not know the financial institution, we recommend that you may want to order a credit report form one of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies. For more information go to ftc.gov and click on credit reports.
Q: There was a breach on my account and I received a new card
A: MasterCard appreciates the concern and diligence you are taking to protect your finances as it relates to MasterCard cards and the inquiry regarding a card account breach that has impacted you directly. We do take each card breach occurrence very seriously and work closely with investigative agencies.
Specific to card breaches, we encourage you to contact your financial institution for the most up to date information. Typically there is a customer service number on the back of each card for your financial institution that you can call.
Q: Please provide the name of the merchant where my card account was compromised
A: MasterCard appreciates the concern and diligence you are taking to protect your finances as it relates to credit cards and the inquiry regarding a card account breach that has impacted you directly. We do take each card breach occurrence very seriously and work closely with investigative agencies. Additionally, MasterCard has stiffened penalties to processors to help ensure each of these companies protects cardholder data with extreme care and diligence.
Specific to card breaches, MasterCard cannot determine which merchant transaction caused a card breach since this data is not generally provided to us. We encourage you to contact the financial institution that issued your MasterCard card for the most up to date information. Typically, there is a customer service number on the back of each card that you can call.
Q: Questions not answered here
A: If your question is not listed among the previous topics and questions, your best option is to contact the financial institution that issued your account as only they hold account specific and unique information. Typically there is a customer service number for your financial institution on the back of each card that you can call. You can always contact the MasterCard Assistance Center toll free at 1-800-307-7309 or 'Collect' by dialing 1-636-722-7111.

MasterCard Currency Conversion Tool

MasterCard Currency Conversion Tool

MasterCard's Currency Conversion Tool was created to assist customers in Europe to comply with the provision contained in the Payment Services Directive (PSD) that requires transparency of exchange rate information. Specific reference is made to the transparency requirements imposed by Title III of the PSD that apply to payment services made in Euro or any of the official EEA currencies. In addition to providing customers with calculated cross-rates for all EEA currencies, MasterCard has extended the range of currencies to assist customers and their cardholders globally.
Disclosure:
 MasterCard Currency Conversion Tool
MasterCard uses multiple market sources (such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Central Banks and others) to develop exchange rates. These rates generally reflect either wholesale market rates or government mandated rates that are collected during the daily rate setting process. The displayed rates are derived from the buy and sell rates included in the MasterCard daily rate setting process and do not include any charges or markups applied by the Issuer. Please note that due to possible rounding differences, the displayed rates may not precisely reflect the actual rate applied to the transaction amount when converting to the cardholder billing amount. The exchange rate that is applied to a transaction is the exchange rate as of the day of settlement which is the day that MasterCard determines the settlement amount to be exchanged between the acquirer and the issuer. The settlement date is therefore typically different from the date of the actual transaction. MasterCard does not provide the exchange rate when purchases are converted from the local currency by the merchant to the cardholder's currency at the point of sale.
