|Your Card Identification Number|
The Card Identification Number is an added security feature to help protect you against online fraud. It is a 3- or 4-digit number that appears on your credit or debit card, next to your regular card number. Because the Card Identification Number is non-embossed and therefore not printed on receipts, it helps ensure that someone cannot use your credit card information without having the card in hand.
Locating Your Card Idendification Number
The length and location of the Card Identification Number depends on which type of card you're using.
