Security plays of course an important role, particularly for monetary transactions. For this reason, SOFORT Banking has been designed as one of the most secure online payment systems. With SOFORT Banking you use the well-known online banking. Mainly the confirmation code offers protection against misuse. It can only be used once and becomes invalid after use. Furthermore, data is only entered in the encoded payment wizard of SOFORT GmbH. Your confidential online banking details (like PIN) and confirmation codes (like TAN) are not stored nor can they be accessed by SOFORT GmbH employees or third parties. The data is transferred via SSL connections secured with up to AES -256 bits.
To ensure permanent data security, we do not only rely on our own expertise. The compliance of the data protection guidelines throughout the entire company was tested and certified on a regular basis by the independent German test authority TÜV Saarland according to the strict regulations of the German Federal Data Protection Act. SOFORT GmbH has the TÜV certification seals “Approved Data Protection” and “Approved Payment System”. You can find more information on how secure SOFORT Banking is here.
