What is a CVV/CVC code, and why is it necessary?

The Card Verification Value (CVV) or Card Verification Code (CVC) is a three- or four-digit number found on the back (for Visa, MasterCard) or front (for American Express) of your credit/debit card.

It acts as an additional layer of security for online transactions, verifying that the person making the purchase has the physical card in their possession.
