When you use Azimo to send money home to family and friends around the world, you need to be able to trust us every step of the way. So, as well as helping you transfer for less thanks to our super-low fees and market-beating rates, we also do everything we can to make sure your money is always 100% secure. That’s why millions of pounds get sent safely with us worldwide every year. And why, once people have used Azimo to transfer money once, they use us again and again.
We monitor our systems every second of every day
By employing industry-leading procedures and protocols to constantly scan for unusual or suspicious transactions, we make sure that your financial security is never, ever compromised. Our systems are protected by 24/7 monitoring and a world-class compliance team.
We use bank-level security
Our website and mobile apps use 3D Secure technology (MasterCard SecureCode and Verified by Visa) systems to ensure that only valid payments are processed. Once they’re approved, Azimo’s in-built CyberSource platform provides the world’s largest fraud detection radar to keep your transactions risk-free.
Fingerprint recognition makes our apps ultra secure
Fingerprint recognition is a brilliant bit of biometric tech and you don’t have to be a boffin to use it – simply go to your My Azimo settings and turn it on (it’s known as Touch ID on iPhones). Activating it means you can then use your unique fingerprint to confirm your transfers and access personal data – it’s a brilliantly fast and convenient added layer of security to help keep you safe.
We’re authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority
Azimo is authorised and approved to issue electronic money by the Financial Conduct Authority, which maintains the integrity of the UK’s financial markets. And in Germany we’ve been certified by TÜV for data protection – this highly respected, independent inspection organisation only gives approval to products and services that meet the very highest standards.
Your money can never be used for the wrong purpose
As part of our FCA regulation, we’re required to hold all our customers’ funds in fully segregated client accounts with trusted global institutions. Azimo’s own operating accounts are stored completely separately. In other words, your funds can never be used to settle our business affairs.
We keep you safe from fraud and scams. Always
One of the reasons we can keep our fees so low is that we’re extra vigilant when it comes to potential frauds and scams. Moving your money securely is our primary concern and Know Your Customer (KYC) is the policy that wraps everything up. Making sure we ask the right questions not only keeps you and your money safe, but also keeps our prices down. Isn’t that exactly what you want when you send money – safety, security and very low fees?
Azimo’s market-leading platform means you can send money to more than 190 countries across the globe in just a few clicks via our website or app. Head to our homepage, check out our brilliant rates and start saving today!
