Communication Security

All communications between you and Biscuit Tin are secured using a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSLs are used is to keep sensitive information sent across the Internet encrypted so that only the intended recipient can access it.

When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to.

SSL Certifications are in place across all of our Website and Biscuit Tin application communications.

Two Factor Authentication

Whenever you or any of your Nominees sign in to your Biscuit Tin we will send a unique code to the registered mobile phone or email address that must be input as part of the login process.

This additional layer of security means that even in the unlikely event that someone got hold of a password somehow, they still wouldn’t be able to access your data.
