eWallet is very secure, and stores your data using 256-bit AES encryption. This is the same encryption method that many government organizations require to protect their data. On specific platforms, eWallet's AES encryption is also FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) compliant:

FIPS Certification, Windows

Ilium Software eWallet 6 and 7 are FIPS compliant on the Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Mobile 5.0 and Windows Mobile 6.0 platforms where it uses Microsoft cryptographic libraries that have received certificates and been validated as conforming to the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Algorithm, as specified in Federal Information Processing Standard Publication 197, Advanced Encryption Standard. Please see the Advanced Encryption Standard Algorithm Validation List for more information.

Product: Windows 8 (Desktop)
Vendor: Microsoft Corporation
Component: CryptoAPI
Validation Number: 2216
Notes: "The Microsoft Windows Cryptographic Primitives Library is a general purpose, software-based, cryptographic module which can be dynamically linked into applications by developers to permit the use of FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant cryptography."

Product: Windows 7
Vendor: Microsoft Corporation
Component: CryptoAPI
Validation Number: 1178
Notes: "The Microsoft Windows Cryptographic Primitives Library is a general purpose, software-based, cryptographic module which can be dynamically linked into applications by developers to permit the use of FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant cryptography."

The key used to encrypt your information is generated from your password. eWallet does not store your password in your wallet file, or anywhere on your mobile device or your PC.
