Our trading platform uses the industry standard for online security, so your spread betting is as safe as with any online bank.
SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption is the online standard for financial transactions, from PayPal and eBay to the high street banks. So when you log into our dealing platform you can rest assured that your money is well-secured, and bet on any available market with confidence.
However, there are certain measures you can take in order to ensure your transactions are as secure as possible. Browse our help and support
section to learn more about our online security measures and how you can protect yourself.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to increase your online security is by using the most up-to-date software available.
Companies like Microsoft and Mozilla commonly issue a steady stream of patches and updates for their web browsers, designed to fix security holes and improve performance, so it's worth keeping your software current.
Some of the main benefits of upgrading your browser include:
- Improved security
- Better and faster access to websites and applications
- Dramatically reduced login times
Visit our browsers page for more information about browser speeds and to check if you have the latest versions available.
Spread bets are leveraged products. Spread betting may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
