This is the safest level of encryption available on the Internet today. It allows FFL to transfer account information on a secured level.
Is accessing eFFL private and secure?
Yes. We use a system of firewalls that serve as an immune system to protect our information from unauthorized intruders. The system continuously monitors for any indications of a breach. Additionally, we use and require you to use a browser that supports 128-bit encryption. Also, we use an automatic "time out" system that will automatically log you off if, after 20 minutes of inactivity, you have not logged yourself off.
