Password Security

When you log on to your account, we take precautions to protect your account. First, whenever you log in to your Amazon Pay account, you log in using a secure server connection (https://). We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) with 128 bit encryption, the industry standard in secure server protection. Your account is also protected by a unique password created by you. You should not use common words or phrases as your password. Instead, your password should be at least six characters comprising both numbers and letters in both upper and lower case. We also recommend that you keep this password confidential. Sharing your password can compromise the security of your Amazon Pay account.
