How safe are my user ID and password?

The generated user identity and password are stored on a different server, which cannot be accessed through the Internet. Only authorized person can access the user ID and password. Also, the clients’ user ID and password are encrypted while travelling through the Internet, as 128-bit encryption and SSL (secured socket layer) technology are in use.

SSL forms a secure tunnel for information, which ensures that no one can gain access to the information being shared by the client over the net. The 128-bit encryption encrypts every alphabet or number typed by the client on his/her computer while transacting KIFS Trade Capital TWS. Currently, 128-bit encryption is the strongest form of encryption available, and to date, there have been no reports of any hacking incidents through it.
