What is Encryption?
Encryption scrambles data into unintelligible characters based on a secret key. Encryption increases the level of security for the information you send from your browser over the Internet to the Dentists and Dental Health Care Professionals website. Most browsers support a minimum level of 40-bit encryption as well as a stronger 128-bit encryption level.

This site only supports 128-bit web browser encryption. Even though we use the more secure 128-bit encryption, there is a certain amount of risk involved in any Internet communication and Aetna cannot guarantee the privacy and confidentiality of information exchanged in this manner.
