Shop safely with MasterCard SecureCode

We want you to be safe when you use your Yorkshire Bank credit card for online shopping. That’s why your Yorkshire Bank card is protected by MasterCard SecureCode

Common questions
  • MasterCard credit cards use the latest chip and PIN technologies to combat the fraudsters. For online purchases, MasterCard SecureCode improves your security even more. Using a personal password, known only to you, it lets you identify yourself as the owner of the card and stops anyone else using your card online.

    How to register

    To make sure your Gold MasterCard is covered, you need to register it.

    Register your other cards

    If you already have a Yorkshire Bank Visa credit card, you can register for Verified by Visa, an online protection scheme similar to MasterCard SecureCode.

    Can I register a joint card holder?

    Yes. A joint card holder can also register for their own MasterCard SecureCode using their own card.

    Where can I shop once I’m registered?

    The majority of online retailers now offer the added security of SecureCode. You can still use your card with non-participating retailers – but you won’t have this extra level of security.

    What happens if I haven’t registered?

    To make sure all online transactions are secure, you’ll always be asked for your SecureCode when you use your MasterCard at a participating retailer. If you haven’t registered, you can still register at the checkout of the retailer. If you choose not to register, your transaction may be declined.

    What are the system requirements for SecureCode?

    MasterCard SecureCode works with most internet browsers, but software that prevents pop-up windows may interfere with your use of SecureCode.
