Each person controls their password, and the account cannot be accessed without that password. Further, MyCare uses the latest 128-bit SSL encryption technology with no caching to automatically encrypt your session with MyCare. Unlike conventional e-mail, all MyCare messaging is done while you are securely logged on to our website.
