Is Instant Checkmate Safe?

Instant Checkmate Protects Your Information

If you’re worried about giving out your credit card information online, you may be wondering to yourself, "Is Instant Checkmate really safe?"

Fortunately, using Instant Checkmate is safe and secure. The proof is in the browser.

Fully Secured With HTTPS
How can you tell if a website is secure?

Take a look at the address bar at the top of your browser. If you see the letters "https" at the beginning of the URL, then you have a secure connection.

The "s" at the end of "https" literally stands for secure.

Secure Connection Explained
"Https" means that the session between the web server and the browser you are using is encrypted. Your data is protected from hackers and cybercriminals.

Your Payments Are Safe
Any site that asks you for payment or credit card information should always have "https" at the beginning of its URL.

If you visit our checkout page, you'll see that Instant Checkmate does have "https" at the beginning of the URL, so it's safe to enter your payment information on this page.

You can even click on the little lock icon that appears before the URL to see complete details about our SSL certificate and encryption methods.
