Our Security Approach

How Our Security Approach Protects You

Your security is one of Ally's top priorities. For your protection, only people who need your information to do their jobs have access to the personal information you provide us. Below are details about how our layered security strategy helps keep our customers safe.

Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware Protection

This type of protection helps detect and prevent viruses and malicious software.

Firewalls

These network security systems help block unauthorized access.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption

This encryption protects your information from being intercepted by creating a secure connection with your browser when you log in, fill out an application or enroll in online services.

2-Step Authentication

When additional verification is needed, we activate extra security measures like asking you a question that only you know the answer to or sending a security code to a device that you've registered. You may also know this as 2-factor or multi-factor authentication.
