Worry less

Dwolla was built to be safe and secure.

When you use Dwolla, you share only your unique Dwolla ID, email or phone number. As an added layer of security, you’re prompted to enter your unique four digit PIN every time you move money or make any major change to your account.

Unlike paper checks or credit card transactions, your financial information is not transmitted when making a purchase, limiting the threat of possible identity theft.

We think about this stuff 24-7-365

There’s literally nothing we think or care about more than protecting our customers and their information.

We have a full time fraud prevention team at our headquarters in Des Moines, IA. Our security practitioners have over 5 decades of combined experience in the field.

Dwolla processes thousands of transactions each day, allowing us to continually enhance our information security and fraud detection and prevention tools.

Some more geeky stuff about security

We love talking about safety and security procedures. We’re geeks like that. Let us obsess about your safety so you don’t have to.

  • Our servers are encrypted with 128-bit encryption through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) and/or Transport Layer Security (TLS), and it all sits behind firewall and intrusion protection. We back up everything and we have (what we think is a pretty impressive) disaster recovery system in place, just in case.
  • Your data resides on a server that is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. We considered many hosting providers and ultimately partnered with a hosting provider that has numerous years of experience in the financial industry and hosts many large financial institutions’ online web portals and web bill pay applications.
  • The Dwolla website is tested and certified by the McAfee® SECURE Security Scan, ensuring that no vulnerabilities exist.
  • We never sell your information to anyone - ever. Check out our Privacy Policy.

Thousands of businesses and non-profits trust Dwolla.
