Only you can access
your return

TurboTax Online requires a unique user name and password, giving you complete control over who sees your personal information. What’s more, the TurboTax Security Team physically protects our computers and your information, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

TurboTax CDs and downloads store your information right on your computer, tablet or mobile device, so you can choose your own password to protect your personal information.

Your information
travels safely

To efile your tax return, TurboTax uses the same encryption technology used by banks, so your information is protected from any unauthorized access while it’s electronically sent to the IRS and state agencies.
