Important Question: Is Skrill Actually Safe?
At the time of writing this overview, around 25 million users trust this payment method with their money, and over 120,000 merchants offer it for payment in their stores.
Skrill has been in this industry since 2001, and for many years now, it has been a part of a huge umbrella group perfectly protecting its own data and its users’ data. Therefore, we can believe that Skrill is pretty much safe.
The company lists its own security features:
- users’ data is not fully shared with the merchants
- 2-factor authentication is applied for operations
- all incoming and outcoming data is encrypted using PCI-DSS Level 1
- the company has a UK license
However, while technically Skrill is safe for payments, it may not be as convenient for online gambling. Some countries limit deposits and withdrawals via Skrill to and from online casinos, and some Skrill casinos in Canada also put limitations on users paying via Skrill.
