You create a Mastercard SecureCode password that is linked to your Smart Account Debit Mastercard. Thereafter, every time you go to make a purchase online at participating websites using your Smart Account Debit Mastercard, you’ll be prompted to enter that password. By doing so, you are authorising the purchase and confirming that you are the card owner. This makes online shopping a safer place for you to use your Smart Account Debit Mastercard.

Keep it secret, and do not share it with anyone. Never give your password out over the telephone or in written correspondence. If you think that someone knows your password, change it immediately.
