Security & Privacy

We take security very seriously

We have a comprehensive security program that aims to keep your information secure and private.

All entries you make into SilverCloud are completely private

Using SilverCloud on your device

Your security and privacy when using SilverCloud also depends on your computer, tablet or smartphone and your connection to the internet: remember to keep your software up to date, choose strong unique passwords, use security protection software, and avoid insecure public Internet connections.

We recommend that you log out when you have finished working on SilverCloud, to preserve your own privacy.

TLS encryption

TLS is a layer of security that is necessary to safeguard your use of the platform. We have detected that your browsers security support is not high enough. It is important that you update your browser soon. Go here for more information
