Credit Card Security

In an effort to offer you greater online security, we are working with MasterCard® and VISA® to protect your credit card information when you make online purchases.

By selecting your own private code, you'll be protected against unauthorized use of your credit card at participating merchants. While shopping at participating online merchants, you'll be prompted to choose your own private code before completing your transaction.

Or, to create your own code now, follow the simple steps after clicking on the following website.

MasterCard® SecureCode - Click here or view participating merchants
Verified by VISA® - Click here or view participating merchants

You will be prompted to enter a user name and password for use only on these websites. Please be sure to select a user name and password that are different from those that you have selected for use at

Once you have created your code, you can then use it for future purchases at participating online merchants. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact us at 1-800-790-9130.

Password Tips

Your password should adhere to these requirements:

  • Between six and eight alphanumeric characters
  • Start and end with a letter
  • Include at least one number
  • Single word with no blanks
  • Case sensitive
  • Limit of three repeating characters
  • May not be the same as your User ID

For example, let’s say your favorite movie is Star Wars. You can add a number to the name for a password that’s easy to remember: S2TARWARS.

When you signed up for online access, you were also asked to select two different security questions from the options available and to provide your answers to those questions. We will use this information to help verify your identity if you:

  • Call the On-Line Services Support Group on the telephone;
  • Have forgotten your online password and would like to reset it online;
  • Have accidentally locked your online account and cannot access it.

If you suspect that you are a victim of identity theft as a result of any of
these types of actions, please contact Wilmington Trust immediately
at 1-800-724-2440.
