Our Wix Websites are Made with Security in Mind

Know Your Important Information is Protected

Your website's data is encrypted using the highest industry standards. Wix's encryption ensures that none of your visitor's private information falls into the wrong hands.

Accept Online Payments Securely (e-commerce, booking or event websites)

Wix sites meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), so your customers can make online payments securely and feel confident that their financial info will stay private.

Work Safely with Third-Party Vendors
