Your Credit Card Safety is important to US!

Secure data encryption

Security is one of our biggest priorities at Square. To protect Square users and their customers, all information by our users has been encrypted and submitted to our servers securely. Our software and hardware meet (and in most cases exceed) all PCI-Compliant regulations as well. As per our User AgreementSecurity Policy andPrivacy Policy, we will never sell information to third party vendors.

Physical & Network Security

  • Fully encrypted: Square performs data encryption within the card reader at the moment of swipe.
  • Sensitive data is encrypted using industry-standard methods when stored on disk or transmitted over public networks.
  • Only standard, well-reviewed cryptographic protocols and message formats (such as SSL and PGP) are used when transferring data.
  • Symmetric cryptographic keys are required to be at least 128 bits long. Asymmetric keys must be at least 2048 bits long.
  • Security updates and patches are installed on servers and equipment in a timely fashion.
  • Security settings of applications and devices are tuned to ensure appropriate levels of protection.
  • Square’s website and API are accessible via 128-bit, extended-validation SSL certificates issued by VeriSign.
  • Networks are strictly segregated according to security level. Modern, restrictive firewalls protect all connections between networks.
  • Card-processing systems adhere to PCI Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), Level 1.

Web and Client Application Security

  • Card numbers, magnetic stripe data, or security codes are not stored on Square client devices.
  • Applications developed in-house are subject to strict quality testing and security review. Web development follows industry-standard secure coding guidelines, such as those recommended by OWASP.
  • Card-processing applications adhere to the PCI Data Security Standard(PCI-DSS), Level 1.

Organizational Security

  • Access to sensitive data, including application data and cryptographic keys, is strictly controlled on a need-to-know basis.
  • Two-factor authentication and strong password controls are required for administrative access to systems.
  • Security systems and processes are tested on a regular basis by qualified internal and external teams.
  • All access to secure services and data is strictly logged, and audit logs are reviewed on a regular basis.
  • Security policies and procedures are carefully documented, and are reviewed on a regular basis.
  • Detailed incident response plans have been prepared to ensure proper protection of data in an emergency.
