SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption is the online standard for financial transactions, used by the major banks. So when you log into our trading platform you can be safe in the knowledge that your money is secure, and trade on any available market with confidence.
There are, however, further steps you can take yourself to make your transactions as secure as possible. Browse our Help & Support portal to learn more about our online security measures, and how you can further protect yourself.
What you can doOne of the easiest, cheapest (or free) ways to improve your online security is to use the most up-to-date software on offer. Providers like Mozilla and Microsoft typically issue regular patches and updates for their web browsers, to fix security issues and improve performance. Some of the main benefits of upgrading your browser include:
- Improved security
- Better and faster access to websites and applications
- Dramatically reduced login times
PHISHINGYou should also be vigilant against phishing, whereby fraudulent emails request your personal data, or prompt you to download a virus.
While anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewalls and other software - along with your email client's spam/junk filters - help to address this risk, phishing emails can penetrate these protective measures, and you are ultimately responsible for safeguarding your own personal data.
