Card Security

An extra layer of security for online spending

Concerned about using your cards online? Verified by Visa and MasterCard Secure Code protect your card twice, with a personal message and your own secret password.

How it works - four simple steps

  1. Shop online as usual and visit the checkout
  2. Enter your card details
  3. If the website uses Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode, a personal message will tell you that the bank or organisation that issued your card is asking for your password
  4. Enter your password and click 'submit' - your identity is confirmed

Our internet guarantee

It’s a horrible feeling - you discover a transaction has been carried out on the internet without your knowledge or consent. But there’s no need to worry - if you've registered with NatWest Secure, we guarantee not to hold you liable for the fraudulent transaction.

Can I register more than one card?
