Data privacy and security is the highest priority for Provide Support. Our servers are located in the best US data centers with 24/7/365 multiple-layer security access, infrastructure and perimeter monitoring.
We offer a secure connection option in our system. We use the latest TLS protocol with industry-strength AES-256 encryption. If the confidentiality of your chat sessions is important, this feature should be used. If you decide not to use the secure connection, your conversations may be unlawfully intercepted by third parties during transmission over the Internet.

Files temporarily stored on the chat servers are linked to the particular chat session they were sent in, and destroyed immediately after that chat session has been finished.
