Apriva uses strong controls to protect sensitive information that is exchanged with our site. Apriva information systems are operated by Apriva in a highly secure environment that maintains strict controls to prevent unauthorized access to the information and information services we provide. These controls include restricted physical access to all Apriva facilities, network firewalls, and logical access controls to prevent unauthorized access to Apriva-provided information and services.

Apriva's Payment Gateway Applications and Services

Username and Password

Apriva assigns and uses usernames and passwords as a key control in assuring that each customer’s information is available only to the respective, authorized customer. Apriva provides its customer with a unique username and password that must be entered each time the user logs on to the Apriva system. These passwords must meet minimum requirements for length and complexity, and must be changed at least every ninety (90) days.

It is important that you regard your Apriva password as a secret and that you protect it from disclosure or compromise. 

  • Do not share your Apriva username and password with others.
  • Do not allow others to observe your entry of your username and password when you log on to Apriva products or services.
  • Immediately notify your merchant services provider, or contact Apriva directly, in the event you suspect that your username and password have been compromised.

Cookies

Apriva issues "cookies" only to record encrypted authentication information for the duration of a specific session. The session "cookie" does not include either the username or password of the user. Apriva does not use "cookies" to store other confidential user and session information.

Recommended Security Practices for AprivaPay 

The Apriva Security Team suggests the following good security practices for the safety and protection of your business, Smartphone and merchant account:

  1. Please be sure to keep your Smartphone or mobile device in your possession at all times.
  2. Read and follow your manufacturer’s user guide instructions for the secure use of the device, including:
    • Use the device security features to require the entry of a unique PIN/password to “unlock” the device.
    • Do not modify the software of your Smartphone or mobile device via “Jailbreak” or similar applications for use with non-traditional wireless networks or unassigned application.
    • Do not attempt or allow modifications to the device or its software that is intended or is known to override the manufacturer-supported security features and operational capabilities.
  3. Do not use a device that has been modified to override the manufacturer-supported features and operational capabilities of the Smartphone.
  4. Specify a strong PIN to access AprivaPay – a minimum of four digits is required, but a longer PIN is more secure. Avoid repeating or predictable sequences i.e., "1111", "1234").
  5. Proceed with caution with any message containing links to Web sites.
  6. Be alert for email-delivered “Phishing Attacks” and fraudulent provisioning messages:
    • Phishing attacks are maliciously designed e-mail or text messages that attempt to obtain sensitive information from you directly (i.e., usernames, passwords, credit card numbers) or to compromise the security of your Smartphone or mobile device.
    • Fraudulent provisioning messages – You may receive an email from Apriva to obtain your initial “download” of the AprivaPay application.  The application download will always be delivered through the Apple App Store or Google Play. However, you should be suspicious of any subsequent message (SMS or email) that encourages you to follow a link for any software updates for your AprivaPay application.
    • Note: You will never receive an e-mail or text message with a link to follow to download a new version of AprivaPay.
  7. Be alert for updates to your Apriva application and be sure to upgrade in a timely manner. If there is a newer version of AprivaPay available for your phone, the Apple App Store or Google Play will notify you of available updates. You can download and install the update at your convenience.
  8. Exit the AprivaPay application when not being used.  Apriva recommends that you always exit the AprivaPay application when you are finished using it. The application will time out in 10 or 15 minutes, but you can help ensure secure operation by exiting AprivaPay when you are done with it.
