- Shazam Secure Code
Verified by MasterCard, SecureCode helps prevent unauthorized use of your debit card online with an extra layer of security that prevents fraudulent purchases when you check out online. Register for the Shazam SecureCode at https://shazam.cardinalcommerce.com/CardServices/ .
Once your card is registered, you will be asked to create your own password. Any time you shop online with a participating SecureCode Merchant you will be prompted to provide your password as part of the checkout process. Purchases will only be authorized once your password has been entered into the Verified by MasterCard SecureCode screen.
You will also be required to create you own personal message that will appear on the screen that prompts you for your password. Every time you see your own personal message on the screen you will know that you are communicating with SHAZAM.
If you have already registered for the SecureCode prior to 9/9/2015, you will be prompted to register again the next time you make a purchase at a participating SecureCode merchant.
