Could not access Betfred?
If you do come across any problems when trying to login to your Betfred account, it’s useful to be able to understand the cause. When it comes to accessing the site, there are two main factors that will impact your Betfred login, such as the server location and the type of SSL certificate being used for encryption.
The Betfred servers are currently based in Gibraltar which means that although speeds are usually faster for the customer, the site is at risk of downtime if there are internet issues on Gibraltar. The site is also at risk of a DDOS attack, leading to decreased site performance, due to the main page not being backed up by a protection service such as Cloudflare.
The Betfred SSL certificate is provided by DigiCert Inc and protects multiple domains across the site. The licence costs Betfred around $1999 a year and uses the standard SHA256/RSA encryption which is found on most betting sites. It provides encryption to keep your login details secure and prevents your information from being accessed by anyone else.
If you encounter problems with the site or your Betfred login you can contact customer support which is based in the UK. Response time to customer issues is usually very fast, with an average time of around 3 minutes. See the options below for the full Betfred contact details.
