An Added Level of Fraud Protection
Online transactions are seemingly a way of life now. You can purchase your groceries, clothing, household items, and much more with a click of a button. But how do you know that your personal information is safe?
Mastercard® has applied an additional layer of security for all online transactions made using your Pioneer Bank Debit card. Mastercard 3-D Secure® technology uses a risk-based analytics model to predict the likelihood that an online transaction is being made by the cardholder. This model uses data embedded in the authorization message such as an IP address, device ID, geo-location, and online shopping activity. This added layer of fraud protection will provide you with a seamless transaction experience.

- Don’t send sensitive information through unsecure email.
