Encryption is the scrambling of data into a secret code that can be read only by software and a special code to decipher the information; it is unreadable by any computer that does not have the software/code to decipher it. Only your computer and PaymentNet have the ability to unlock your code. With PaymentNet, all your activity is protected by industry standard security mechanisms.

To ensure you have the appropriate encryption levels, be sure to use a current browser that supports higher encryption standards. If you have questions, contact your internal technical support team.

You may check that your Internet session is secure by looking for a small lock symbol usually located in the lower corner of your browser window. You may also look for the letters “https://” at the beginning of your website URL in the browser address bar. The “s” indicates that the connection is secure.
