What is 'Verified by Visa' or 'Mastercard Secure Code'?

 

Credit Card Security

 
Verified by Visa and Mastercard Secure Code are services introduced by the credit card industry, to protect credit card owners from unauthorized use of their cards. This works in such a way, that as a part of the payment procedure, an additional identification is requested, which usually is a password, oder a PIN No.
This is maintained by the bank, which issued the credit card, or the payment provider.
Joker.com does not have access to these credentials, and does not store such data in general.
