While entering the online bingo arena promises an entertaining experience, security is and should be a major concern. All your sensitive data including your name, address and phone number are requested when registering. Then comes the major step, submitting your banking information when making a deposit. You contemplate and hesitate for a moment, should you or shouldn't you. There is a lot on the line, literally. How safe is online bingo? The answer is, extremely safe.
Thanks to a program called 'encryption' players can put their mind at ease. Through the process of encryption the Internet is a safe venue for websites that utilize this resourceful tool. It is a program most banks and financial institutions use in protecting customers. It is as important to any proprietor as it is for the their clientele. Owners go to great lengths to safeguard against any intruders. With millions of people doing business daily on the Internet, it is only fitting that a program would be developed.
What exactly is encryption and how does it work? It is a fool proof way of preventing any unwanted hacker from accessing your account. To put it in it's simplest terms, encryption scrambles all data transmitted from your computer to the server. There are two types of encryption services used. Symmetric Key Encryption is based on sophisticated process using algorithm. There are up to 256 codes used that transforms the data. This creates a hacker proof environment with millions of possible combinations to try and crack the code. The other is Public Key Encryption where a asymmetric key code process is implemented using two different keys. The private key is used by each individual computer and the public key is shared between the computers as information is being exchanged. The information is coded by your computer and then sent with a extra code packet. This public key packet is deciphered by the receiving computer and uses the private key to translate the data sent.
To ensure the integrity of a bingo site, players can verify the security in several ways. Check under Security section, Privacy section or FAQ page. For some sites there is a seal found at the bottom of the homepage bearing the security logo. Some popular brands commonly used include Thawte, Comodo, Geo Trust and Verisign.
