FAQs


Why should I worry about cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity keeps your website running, accessible, and safe for visitors. Without it, criminals can attack business websites using malware and other software designed to steal sensitive information, hijack payments, or prevent visitors from using your site. Strong security allows visitors to complete transactions and share information safely so that you can continue providing services and products.


How is my website protected?

Wix uses encryption to secure your sensitive data. Encryption is a method of protecting information by converting it into a code. That way, it's useless to would-be thieves and only accessible to authorized people. Wix protects data in transit (data being moved from one place to another, such as over the internet in email communication) using HTTPS, TLS 1.2 and above, and SSL, which are all protocols designed to transport data securely. Data being stored (data at rest) is encrypted using AES-256, an advanced encryption system.


To show that the website is secure, each Wix site includes a security certificate. Look for the little lock symbol to the left of the website address at the top of your internet browser to view the certificate.


To ensure financial transactions can be conducted safely through your website, Wix consistently meets the high standards of the PCI, an organization that sets the requirements for safely processing payment card data. Wix also constantly scans your website for threats and has a team ready to deal with any potential problems.
