Security - Xapo


Protecting your future

Our assets mean everything—not just for ourselves, but for our families. This reality has fueled us to build ultra-secure Vaults in the Swiss Alps and around the world. We’re creating a new standard in financial security.

Keeping you a step ahead

With advanced cryptographic security, multiple access levels and instant notifications, we give you the tools you need to effectively manage your assets while safeguarding your funds.

  • Proprietary data encryption technology
  • Multi-factor authentication and private key segmentation
  • 24/7 fraud and risk analysis
  • Round-the-clock security team online
  • Custom permissions for each account member
  • Partition funds for different user groups
  • Geographic dispersion of Vaults

We’ve built a fortress—for you

Xapo has been described by The Wall Street Journal as the “Fort Knox of bitcoin storage”. We now bring that same level of trusted, secure storage to traditional currencies for every Xapo user. And, as always, it’s free for everyone.

So just how safe is your money?

    It’s an ultra-secure, state-of-the-art Vault...

    Xapo customer funds are stored in offline, secure, encrypted servers that are never connected to the internet.

  • ...deep inside a decommissioned military bunker...

    To maintain strict access control, Xapo servers sit behind reinforced concrete walls, a steel blast door and a radio wave-blocking Faraday cage.

  • ...secured in the Swiss Alps...

    Xapo’s secure Vaults are housed in high-security installations, including deep within a decommissioned Swiss military bunker that offers uniquely robust protection against physical theft.

  • ...redundantly stored in Vaults around the world...

    Xapo’s redundant, global network of storage Vaults ensures that no single security breach would ever compromise your account.
