Software Security

256-bit SSL Encryption

All information transmitted using FreshSchools is kept safe using 256-bit SSL encryption. This is the same encryption technology that banks use to keep account information safe. The lock icon in your browser lets you know that your information is protected. This includes passwords and personal details at all times.


FreshSchools uses state-of-the-art backup technology to ensure that your information is always available no matter what happens. Our system stores backups in multiple secure locations and is updated throughout each and every day. The data we store is replicated in servers in two geographic locations to prevent a single failure from causing data loss.
