When you sign in to your account, we take precautions to protect your account. First, whenever you sign in to your Amazon Payments account, you sign in using a secure server connection (https://). We use Transport Security Layer (TLS)/Secure Socket Layer (SSL) with 128-bit encryption, the industry standard in secure server protection.
Your account is also protected by a unique password that you create. Remember these guidelines when creating your password:
- Avoid using common words or phrases as your password.
- Your password should be at least six characters and include both numbers and letters in both upper- and lowercase.
- We also recommend that you keep this password confidential. Sharing your password can compromise the security of your Amazon Payments account.
