What is Citi Temporary CVV?
Due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, the delivery for your new Citi credit card might take some time to arrive. But fret not, you can still start your expenditure without your physical card by activating your temporary CVV via Citi Mobile® App.
Temporary CVV is a 3-digit security code that you can use to activate your new Citi credit card while waiting for the physical card to be delivered.
To get this unique code, your Citi credit card must firstly get approved by the bank. Then, you may download the Citi Mobile® App and retrieve your unique temporary CVV code to activate your card. Once you’ve received your Citi physical card, the temporary CVV will then be replaced by the CVV on the card.
