Legitimate internet businesses go to great lengths to protect their clients and internet bingo sites are no exception. Internet bingo operators have taken steps to protect their players.

The encryption codes are regularly changes making it virtually impossible for cyber thieves to crack their codes. Personal data is also guarded but a recent case of data theft exposed vulnerabilities at some internet bingo sites.
