Is Dwolla Safe?

Last Updated: Nov 12, 2013 12:25PM CST
Protecting our customers and your information is our top priority at Dwolla.

We encourage you to read more about Dwolla’s security practices here, but here are some basics:
  • Dwolla never transmits your financial information during a transaction. This limits the threat of identity theft.
  • We never sell your information.
  • Dwolla has a full-time team dedicated to risk assessment and fraud prevention.
  • Dwolla does not disclose any of your personal information to third parties without your explicit permission.
  • Dwolla’s website is regularly tested and certified by the McAfee® SECURE Security Scan, ensuring that no vulnerabilities exist.
  • Dwolla’s servers are encrypted with 128-bit encryption through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) and/or Transport Layer Security (TLS). It all sits behind firewall and intrusion protection. We back up everything and we have (what we think is a pretty impressive) disaster recovery system in place, just in case.
  • For added security, anytime you send, deposit, withdraw money or make any major change to your account we require you to enter your unique four-digit PIN.

How is my information protected?
