Online security

Protecting your details online

At LV=, we take the security of your personal and financial details very seriously. Here's what we do and some tips on how you can stay safe when buying online

Protecting your data with encryption

We encrypt (put into a secret code) all the information you send through our online 'quote and buy' applications to keep it safe.

We use what's called 128 bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This scrambles the information you enter to make sure that we're the only ones who can read it.

How to spot a secure webpage

You'll see when you're in a secure part of our site, as the web address starts with https (the 's' stands for secure).

Some browsers also show a picture of a padlock in the address bar or near the bottom corner of your screen. If you double-click the padlock, you'll see the security certificate for that website.

Verisign secured

We're registered with the leading Internet Security company Verisign and you'll see their logo in our car, home, pet insurance and 50 Plus applications.
