Security Policy

My-Legacy® takes extreme measures in protecting your information, data, access and privacy.  Security is top priority at My-Legacy.  My-Legacy locks down access at every layer so that no one other than you can access your data. We not only encrypt data in transit and at rest, we implement multi-factor authentication by default and apply various security measures, so that the encrypted data can ONLY be decrypted by the user who created it. There is no back door and if the user fails to establish their credentials, they are locked out.

My-Legacy Security Policy

My-Legacy enforces various methods to protect your files at rest or in-transit.  My-Legacy enforces all the employees and contractors to comply with our rules that are designed to protect your digital files whether they are accessing them from a computer or from a mobile device.   Here are few of the security measures we take to ensure proper security for your data:


Physical Security

Authentication and Password requirements

Every user registering with My-Legacy must have a unique email address.  We enforce the users to verify that they are the owners of that email account to gain access to their account. We enforce stringent password requirements so that it will difficult to decode.


Encryption & Multi Factor Authentication

My-Legacy employs strong encryption methods to protect your information and data. We use the highest standard in network communications – 256-bit SSL to provide access irrespective of the devices you use, whether it be your desktop, mobile phone or tablets.  No one can see it, access it or break it. We not only encrypt data in transit we encrypt the files, data at rest as well, so you are assured that having access to files is of no use and the data can’t get exposed.

We also take a note of devices you primarily use to access My-Legacy.  If we notice your access from the devices we don’t recognize, we may ask you to re-authenticate your account to ensure it is really you accessing your account by sending a security PIN via SMS to one of your registered devices. This provides extra layer of security so that in the event someone gets hold of your password can’t gain immediate access without going through another layer of authentication.
