Privacy and security

While you may access different websites, your privacy is always protected. 

It's secure

You must verify your identity during setup to:

  • Prove you are who you say you are
  • Make sure no one else can set up your account with your ID
  • Help prevent identity theft

You can see what information will be shared

When you log in to a website you can see what information will be shared with them.

The only type of information that may be shared is:  

  • Some of your basic account information, such as your name, birthdate, address or email address
  • A unique number used to identify you

Only the information that is needed is shared, and no more

We only share the information a website really needs.

For example, sometimes your birthdate is kept private and only the fact that you're over 19 is shared.

We never share which websites you log in to with anyone

We only record when you've logged into a website. The name of it is only saved for a month. It's recorded for security purposes. It's never shared.

For example, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) can not see what other websites you log in to.

We cannot see what you do after you log in

For example:

  • After you log in to the CRA, you will see your tax related information
  • We cannot see that tax information or any other information the CRA has about you

It's safe to use at work too

Your privacy is protected when you log in to websites at work because:

  • It only proves who you are
  • It does not prove that you work for a specific business
  • We do not know which business you work for
