Amazon Secure Payments

We are committed to employ payment security measures to combat fraud and secure private data.

Amazon.co.uk understands that you care about how your private information is used and shared and we appreciate your trust in us. Your privacy is important to us and we work hard to keep your information secure.

Data security is of paramount importance to us. Amazon takes payment security and customer trust seriously. When you shop on Amazon, we take great care to protect your payment details and personal information. Our payment security system encrypts your payment details, such as credit card number, bank account number, and address. This information is encrypted using industry standard encryption during transmission with the appropriate banking institution during order processing. When you purchase from a third-party seller on our site, we do not share your payment details with third-party sellers.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. This includes occasionally requesting proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you. When you place an order, sign up for a subscription, or add a new payment method, your bank may request you to verify your payment method .

Here are four tips to protect your private data and payment information:

  1. Use a strong unique password, meaning do not re-use the password you set for Amazon with any other site,
  2. Be sure to sign out when you finish using a shared computer,
  3. Ensure you can receive critical security notifications and authentication challenges by enrolling your mobile number, email address, and enabling notifications for the Amazon Shopping app on your mobile device,
  4. Consider enabling two-step verification which will prompt you to enter a unique code sent to your phone in addition to your password whenever you sign-in to your account. Learn more about our Privacy Policy.
