We give your data the same care as our own

When you use QuickBooks Online, your data is stored on our servers in the cloud. And because we know that data is one of your company's most important assets, we go to great lengths to protect it.

7 reasons why QuickBooks Online is secure and trustworthy


Intuit's professional staff and automated tools monitor service performance for problems 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our production equipment is housed securely on our servers, complete with 24-7 physical security with full-time security staff, video surveillance and alarms to prevent high-tech breaches.


We rely on advanced, industry-recognised security safeguards to keep all of your financial data private and protected. QuickBooks Online is a VeriSign SecuredTM product. VeriSignTM is the leading secure sockets layer (SSL) Certificate Authority.

With password-protected login, firewall protected servers and the same encryption technology (128 bit SSL) used by the world's top banks, we have the security elements in place to provide you complete peace of mind.


Enjoy the convenience and peace of mind of automatic offsite storage without the extra effort and cost of creating and managing physical backups on your own. Should the unthinkable ever happen and your system fails, all of your data will still be instantly accessible to you from any computer connected to the internet.


We build privacy into everything we do. It's not an afterthought. It's not corporate rhetoric. It's how we choose to treat - and respect - our customers on a daily basis. That's why we follow a strict set of guidelines and practices to protect all of your private information.

We do not sell, rent or share your information with third parties for their promotional use. Intuit is a licensee of TRUSTe Privacy Program, an independent third party organisation whose mission is to accelerate online trust among consumers and organizations globally through its leading privacy trustmark and innovative trust solutions. For full disclosure of our privacy practices, please read our Privacy Statement.


QuickBooks Online has been available more than 99.8% of the time for the past three years.* That's because we rely on redundant servers and a self-correcting error detection program. So even if one server becomes impacted or unavailable, your service will probably not be affected. This means that you can access your data online no matter where you are or what you are doing.


You control who accesses your data, and what they can see and do with it. Each person you invite to use QuickBooks Online must create a unique password and no one can see it — not even the chairman of Intuit. We also offer multiple permission levels that let you limit the access privileges of each user. This means that if you want your part-time contractor to enter his hours, but not access your latest Profit & Loss reports, QuickBooks Online will make it so. And if that's not enough, you can also download a local copy of your data to your hard drive for an extra layer of comfort and control.


QuickBooks Online offers unique Always-On Activity Log and Audit Trail features, which cannot be turned off by a user. They record every login to the service and any changes made to every financial transaction. The Always-On Activity Log is a complete record of activities, while the Audit Trail is an easy-to-read history of all changes to a specific transaction. So nothing can happen to your records without you or your accountant knowing about it. And you'll always have a paper trail to trace all transactions back to their source.
