Is this website secure?

Yes – this website is secure. We use HTTPS across the entire website. Whenever data such as debit or credit card or bank account details are sent or received on this site they are kept secure through encryption (we use 128-bit Transport Layer Security, or TLS, standard). This means that no third party can access this data.

This safeguards you when you transact on our website, e.g. when you apply for a new licence, renew an existing licence, view your TV Licence details online or update your details.

Please note, for additional protection, we use a Web Application Firewall (WAF) which may very occasionally prompt customers to answer a security question via the ‘Captcha’ process. Captchas look something like this:
