Storing Your Personal Information
AES 128-bit symmetric encryption & PCI Compliant
All personal and financial information is encrypted with two levels of AES 128-bit symmetric encryption. In other words, the data is encrypted using keys that are themselves encrypted using other keys, with separate key storage mechanisms for each layer. Circle is fully PCI-DSS compliant as a business.

You also have the option to sign out of all of your current sessions on your devices if you lose a device or fear one of your devices was compromised.
Your dollars are insured
Deposits held in US Dollars are FDIC-Insured up to $250,000. For more information on that, see Section 12 of our User Agreement.
