Credit Card Security Codes

What is the CVV/CVC/CIN code on your credit card?

The CVV/CVC/CIN code is the 3- or 4-digit security code that protects your credit card from possible fraud. Different credit card companies refer to these codes in the following ways:

  • CVV (Card Validation Value) - VISA term
  • CVC (Card Validation Code) - MasterCard term
  • CIN (Card Identification Number) - American Express term.
The security code can be found on the back or front of your card.

How to find your code?

Visa/Mastercard Users: Flip your card over and look at the signature box. You should see either the entire 16-digit credit card number or just the last four digits followed by a special 3-digit code from the right hand side. This 3-digit code is your Card Security Code.

The security code is located just above and to the right of the credit card number. For the Optima card, it is displayed on the front of the card, to the left and just above the credit card number. American Express and are now using this number for added security and customer protection.
