Any personal information you access within the Netwealth website is protected through encryption and password protection technology. When you access Netwealth, we use 256-bit TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption to create an encrypted tunnel between your computer and our web server to prevent third parties from viewing or interfering with your information in transit. 256-bit TLS is the standard for large-scale online merchants, banks, health care organisations, and insurance companies worldwide. TLS also uses security certificates to verify the identity of our website to your browser. You should look for a locked padlock icon and green site information near our website's URL in the address bar of your browser to ensure that your connection is secure.
For additional security, we have installed a timeout facility that automatically logs you out of the platform after a 30-minute period of inactivity.
All your personal information is protected by a password, which you should keep secure. You should change your password regularly, which you can do online by selecting "Change Password" once logged into your account.
