Why do we encrypt emails with sensitive information?
At Community Mortgage, the security of your private information is of the utmost importance. One of the steps we take to ensure this security is the use of email encryption, which can prevent private information from being intercepted and read by unauthorized parties. Email encryption serves multiple purposes to help secure your private information:
- Your information is encrypted in transit which means that if it were to be intercepted while travelling to your inbox, it would not be readable.
- Your information remains encrypted until you are ready to read it. If someone got temporary access to your inbox and downloaded all of your emails, they would not have access to the information in these secured emails.
- Encrypted emails expire after 30 days. This helps protect your private information if your inbox were ever compromised in the future.
