How safe is TransferWise?

Without the tightest of security, there is no TransferWise. It’s as important to us as it is to you.

Like all of the world’s leading financial institutions, TransferWise is registered with the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) as a fully authorized payments institution (reference 571669).

We use trusted European accounts for transferring money and, importantly, keep customer money separately from our operational accounts.

We have a specialised team who are regularly trained and review processes to make sure that we are watertight against the latest threats.

All your transactions are protected by industry standards HTTPS encryption.

To sum up, it really couldn’t be safer. We’ve transferred well over $250 million so far with a total of 0 security issues. We intend to keep it that way!

Feel free to check out our TrustPilot reviews for added peace of mind.
