MySkip is first reuse site given GeoTrust Certification

MySkip, the world’s most secure, easy to use and free website dedicated to promoting the reuse of unwanted goods, has announced that the company has earned GeoTrust’s most powerful 256-bit encryption SSL certificate guaranteeing the highest level of internet security for thousands of its members using the MySkip website.

Gary Cope, CEO at MySkip, said: “MySkip is the first and only website dedicated to reuse that guarantees its members have a secure environment to post and reserve unwanted goods. MySkip is committed to improving the way the public are able to reuse, and this means not only making the process easy but completely safe and secure. People who use know that their personal information is protected to the highest level by GeoTrust’s 256-bit encryption SSL certification.”

MySkip’s founders stated that in order to bring reuse into the mainstream, it is important to ensure that the public wishing to use the internet to get rid of and find unwanted goods have complete confidence that their personal information, messages, etc are protected from prying eyes. In practice, this means that once a member signs into MySkip, all communication between their browser and the MySkip server is encrypted using 256-bit SSL encryption.

Debbie Clark at GeoTrust, a VeriSign company, said: “Consumers have to trust the sites they visit, and they must be able to log on, place orders and make purchases without the fear of their personal information falling into the wrong hands. By deploying SSL protection, MySkip ensures that its customers’ personal details are encrypted and cannot be intercepted by anyone else, an assurance that is invaluable in today’s online environment.”
