Site Security

Ensuring the security and protection of your personal information is important to us. When you choose to apply for any credit card offer shown on our website, you will be taken directly to the card issuer’s secure website to complete the application. 

We only partner with card issuers whose online credit application forms are secured by 128-bit SSL encryption. SSL technology encodes information as it is being sent over the Internet, helping to ensure that the information transmitted remains confidential.

You will know the card issuer’s application form is secure when you see:

  • A secure symbol (for example, closed padlock or key)


  • https:// in the address bar, instead of http://

SSL technology requires the use of compatible browsers which allow you to communicate with our website in a protected session by encrypting information that flows between you and the site. Internet Explorer browser versions prior to 3.02 and Netscape browser versions prior to 4.02 are not capable of 128-bit encryption. We recommend you use the latest browser versions available.

For more information on how we protect information about you online and our approach to privacy, please see our Privacy Policy.
