We can also teach you how to use common computer programs. We're here all day and all night. Just ask.

Security
Is it safe?

At MinuteFix, gaining your trust is our main responsibility. We employ the industry's strongest security standards to ensure that your data, and any transmissions between you and MinuteFix, are safe. We continuously monitor our technician's performance and employ tech-support best practices to protect your privacy. These are some of the ways in which we safeguard your privacy at MinuteFix.

  • All sensitive connections to MinuteFix are protected through 128-bit SSL encryption, the technology industry standard for protecting communications through an internet browser. This prevents hackers from accessing any of the session chat or your credit card data when it is in transit.
  • Our screen-sharing technology has been tested in some of the most trying environments. Used by over 400 banks worldwide, the MinuteFix Remote Desktop software ensures that your connection is secure, and your sensitive data is safe. Throughout the session, you will be able to see everything we do, and can easily disconnect at any time. You remain in control. And, once we have helped you solve your questions, we will no longer be able to see your screen.
  • All chat messages are recorded and remote desktop sessions captured in video format. Computer support sessions are monitored on a daily basis to ensure your security and technicians are trained to protect your sensitive data.
  • MinuteFix has been awarded the VeriSign security seal.
  • We are PCI compliant, meeting the credit-card industry's highest standard of digital information security. We apply high-security protection standards in backup and safe-guarding data.
  • We employ Hackersafe to test our site on a daily basis. Hackersafe attempts to hack MinuteFix once a day, using sophisticated intrusion scripts that attempt to test any vulnerabilities like any malicious hacker would. You can be sure your data is safe with us, we ensure it every day.

How can I protect my computer's security?

MinuteFix gives you the option of sharing your screen with our technicians, who can quickly and efficiently help you identify and correct any problem. You remain in control of any activity that is performed on your computer and you will see every action performed. Remote screen-sharing is an option, and you can choose to only receive instructions to perform the actions on your own if you prefer. You can disconnect anytime, and once the session is complete, MinuteFix will no longer be able to see your screen.

MinuteFix suggests that you remain at your computer during all remote sessions and inform your technician of any sensitive data you might have, so that we can take precautions to protect your personal data. If you have any concerns about your computer's security, please email us at minutefix.privacy@minutefix.com.

Do you bill by seconds, or minute increments?

MinuteFix bills you by minute increments. So, if your session is 2 minutes and 50 seconds long, we'll charge you for 3 minutes.
