Privacy and Security

Who can view my Money Pool page?

Your Money Pool is visible to anyone who has the pool link, i.e. anyone you or your friends have shared it with. No one will be able to find your pool via a search engine.

If you choose to display your contributor details, your incoming transactions will be visible to anyone who visits the Money Pool. 

How secure are Money Pools contributions?

You get the same security you’re used to with PayPal: 
  • We use industry-leading technology to keep your information safe.
  • We automatically encrypt your confidential info in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits. Before you even register or log in to the PayPal site, our server checks that you're using an approved browser one that uses SSL 3.0 or higher.
  • PayPal servers sit behind an electronic firewall and are not directly connected to the internet, so your private information is available only to authorized computers.
Will any of my account info be shared when I create a Money Pool?

No information is shared without your consent. The only information available publicly through your pool is your Profile photo (if you have one), and the name associated with your PayPal account. This information is shared to reassure your friends and family that they are sending money to the correct person.
