Webstore Security

When it comes to security, we’re certified.

As a Certified Internet Secure Merchant that’s approved by the top five banks, Koodo Mobile offers secure, real-time online credit card processing.

Look for the lock – it’s proof that you’re in a secure area. You’ll know you're in a secure area when you see a closed padlock icon, similar to these  , or a key iconif you have an older browser. Depending on your browser, the icon will appear in one of the following areas of your browser window: the bottom right or left corner, on the address bar or in the title bar. Firefox may display an icon similar to this , which indicates that the Webstore is displaying both secure and insecure data (such as the page title) – don’t worry, the transmission of the data is completely secure.

Learn about cookies – a cookie is text info that’s shared between your computer and a website. There are different types of cookies and the Koodo Mobile Webstore uses a temporary cookie that only tracks the products you’ve chosen to purchase. The cookie expires immediately after you’re done shopping, but if you leave the site before you’re done, the cookie will be stored for 30 days, so you can pick up where you left off. We don’t use any of the info transferred through the cookie for promotions or marketing. And we certainly don’t share the info with third parties. Although you can set your web browser to refuse cookies or to alert you when they’re being used, some sites, like in the Koodo Mobile Webstore shopping area, may not function properly.

Data encryption – if you’re using a security-enabled browser any credit card info you send is Internet Secure encrypted. Security-enabled browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer version 2.1 or higher, and Netscape version 2.0 or higher. Encrypted data is extremely difficult to read even if it’s intercepted. So using a security-enabled browser makes your online transaction even safer. Although shipping information is not encrypted on the Koodo Mobile Webstore, Internet Secure uses industry-standard technology, known as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to allow for the encryption of confidential data like your name, address and credit card number.

Verified by VISA – a recent improvement to the security of online shopping. It’s how you can be sure you’re the only person using your VISA card to make online purchases. Setting up this extra layer of security is simple – it’s like using your PIN at an ATM. All you do set up a password with your financial institution and use it when shopping online.
