How secure is GoToWebinar?

Your sessions are completely private and secure. All of our solutions feature end-to-end Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption. No unencrypted information is ever stored on our system.

How do I use GoToWebinar with firewalls?

Our solutions use HTTP outbound connections to transparently enable screen-sharing sessions, even with corporate firewalls in place. In most cases, organizers and attendees can connect to GoToWebinar Online's servers without re-configuring firewall settings.

Can my computer get a virus from downloading the software or attending a session?

No, neither organizers nor attendees can catch or be exposed to viruses from downloading our software. We continuously monitor our development environment for viruses and malware, and all of our downloadable software is digitally signed to prevent tampering by third parties. The warning message customers might see when they install the software is a default message displayed by their browser whenever they download executable files.
