The RW Exchange Security


Encryption
RWX employs the latest in data encryption technology to secure your information. We use industry-standard TLS encryption and always transmit your data via HTTPS.

Real-time protection
We make use of advanced, industry-leading, real-time protection tools to defend our application and your data from malicious users and would-be cyber-attacks. Monitoring and countermeasure suites from Sqreen and Amazon Web Services enable us to protect your data for an easy and secure experience, every step of the way.
Two-step verification
Two-step verification, also known as two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA), is an optional feature that employs one-time-use SMS codes to verify your identity when you sign into RWX.
Help us keep your information safe
You can do your part to ensure your data is kept safe by following some best practices:

  • Don't share accounts or account details
    Keep your login details – the email address and password you use to sign into RWX – to yourself. Don't let other people sign in on your behalf. Even if you trust others with your details, the fact is that sensitive information is simply safer when kept in as few places as possible.
  • Use a password manager and strong passwords 
    We recommend using trusted password manager software to manage your passwords. These tools take the guess work out of creating and remembering your passwords, eliminate insecure passwords, and often allow you to sign in to RWX and other apps and services using biometrics such as a fingerprint or a facial scan, along with a strong master password. 

If you insist on managing your own passwords, we suggest your pick a password that is easy for you to remember and hard for a friend to guess. Your birthday, kids' names, your graduation year, etc. are NOT necessarily good password builders as such information can often be found via social media/public domain. A good starting point for a password is four unrelated but memorable words, separated by spaces. Random numbers and special characters are recommended, but do make your password more difficult to remember.
