Are my deposits FDIC-insured?
Mercury checking and savings deposits are FDIC-insured up to $5M through our partner banks and use of sweep networks. As a broader effort, we are working on expanding all coverage even further. You can learn more about FDIC insurance here.
What do you do for account security?
Mercury makes security a top priority. Here are some measures we take to ensure your security:
  • Require HTTPS on all pages, and use HSTS to ensure browsers only ever connect to Mercury over a secure connection.
  • Employ a third party to perform penetration testing each year to check for vulnerabilities.
  • Hash and store all passwords with the bcrypt algorithm — never as plaintext.
  • Use time-based one-time passwords for two-factor authentication. We never send authentication codes via insecure channels like SMS.
  • Encrypt our database and all uploaded images, with additional encryption for sensitive data like social security numbers.
  • Never store your debit or credit card numbers.
Learn more on our Security page.
How does Mercury make money?
Our primary revenue stream comes from interest earned on deposits.Additionally, when you use your debit card or IO credit card, Visa and Mastercard charge a fee to the merchants — we receive a percentage of this fee, known as interchange. We also earn money on foreign exchange processing on international wires, as well as fees paid on Mercury Treasury* and Mercury Venture Debt.
Can I send checks?
Yes, you can send checks for free through your Mercury dashboard by going through the Send Money flow. For now, we don’t issue checkbooks and third-party checks can’t be drawn on Mercury accounts.
