What is the card CVV code?

We'll explain why a card's CVV code is important
One of the safest ways of making online payments is using credit and debit cards, and this is partly thanks to the CVV code. This acronym, which comes from the English designation (Card Verification Value), is used to verify that the cardholder is the person making the purchase, as the code is only printed on the plastic card.

Often when shopping online or through other telematic means--for example, by phone-, the customer is asked to enter this code. This is one more security measure in addition to the card number itself and the expiration date.
The CVV code, also known as the CVC, CVC2, CVV2 or CID code, is found on the back of the credit or debit card. Next to the space reserved for the user's signature, the CVV code is a 3 or 4 digit number which, unlike debit and credit card numbers, is not raised. With some cards, like American Express, this code is found on the front.
