Express1040® is Secure & Private

The security and privacy of your information is our top priority. Our website environment is encrypted using an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate provided by DigiCert.

Your Information Is Encrypted Using DigiCert

Express1040 uses an SSL certificate that meets the Extended Validation Standard to protect all sensitive information. Extended Validation SSL certificates give high-security web browsers information to clearly identify a website's organizational identity. Web browsers that were developed to recognize EV SSL certificates are considered high-security browsers. They are designed to trigger unique visual cues (green address bar) to indicate the presence of an EV SSL certificate. SSL technology is the most commonly used method on the internet to safely transmit data. Click the graphic at the right to verify the Express1040 EV SSL certificate. DigiCert is one of the most recognized certification authorities worldwide. DigiCert's comprehensive authentication procedures ensure your information is kept private while in transit between your web browser and our web servers.

Access to your personal information is protected by a password, of your choosing, in order to maintain security for your account. Only you, or someone with whom you share your password, can access your account to make changes to your return or account information. Along with using SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information off-line. The Express1040 servers are located in a secure data storage facility with strict security measures and procedures in place.

Third-Party Security Testing

As part of our continued emphasis on security, Express1040 undergoes third-party scanning and testing of our servers. The Security Metrics logo at the right demonstrates our commitment to keeping your information secure. Click for more information.
