At Betfair, the security of your personal information is a priority. When you log in to our website, your username and password are submitted securely. Before your username and password leave your computer, we encrypt them using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL protects information as it crosses the Internet. To support this technology, you need an SSL-capable browser. Betfair recommend that you use a recent Internet browser version, and install vendor-supplied security patches as soon as they are released.
When you are on our home page you might notice some familiar indicators do not appear in your browser to confirm the entire page is secure. Those indicators include the 'lock' icon in the bottom right corner of the browser frame and the 's' in the Web address bar ('https'). As stated above, this does not mean our log in process is not secure. To provide the fastest access possible to the site, we protect your sensitive log in details, but not the other parts of the home page that do not contain sensitive information.
