BECU CardProtect Program
CardProtect offers BECU members free online purchase security protection through MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa®. These programs protect your BECU Debit MasterCard and BECU Visa credit card from unauthorized purchases when shopping online. You create private passwords to verify online purchases and you'll use these passwords each time you complete an online purchase with a participating merchant.
Free Fraud Monitoring
BECU provides free fraud monitoring protection for your BECU debit and credit cards. Your cards are automatically protected with this service and there is no sign up or registration. This service helps reduce identity theft and fraud losses through early detection and notification of possible unauthorized transaction on your BECU debit and credit cards.
If unusual activity is detected, you will receive a call from a fraud investigator asking you to verify your account activity. The investigator can identify your account information through your home or business telephone number, but may ask additional verification questions such as your date of birth or the last four digits of your social security number. Make sure the information we have on record for you is current and accurate.
