General and Medical uses Industry-standard SSL encryption, a technology created for managing the security of message transmissions on the Internet that protects the data you transmit. Secure connections to the General and Medical website are denoted by a padlock icon, normally found at the top of your browser window.
If you receive browser warnings when going from secure mode pages to non-SSL General and Medical sites, it is most likely a warning that you are switching servers. As long as your data is entered on a secure mode page, it will only be transmitted to a General and Medical SSL server.
Secure mode is not supported by all browsers. You may need to download the latest version or upgrade your browser to take advantage of secure sign-in.
