How Does PayPal Keep My Information Safe?


The security of your information, transactions, and money is the core of our business
and our top priority at PayPal.

PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your
computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption
key length of 128 bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even
register or log in to our site, our server checks that you're using an approved browser
- one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.

Once your information reaches us, it resides on a server that is heavily guarded both
physically and electronically. Our servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are
never directly connected to the internet, so your private information stays private.
