Why was my card locked after entering my CVV incorrectly?


When your card’s CVV has been entered incorrectly 3 consecutive times, the payment processor, I2C, will block access to your card for 24 hours. This is the case with Mastercard and is a security measure to help protect your cards from fraud attempts.  Once the card is locked, there isn’t a way to bypass it until the 24 hours have passed. In the meantime, we recommend using another one of your Brex cards to make transactions.
