How to Setup your Inmate Canteen Account Team 3

The Inmate Canteen facilitates inmates using their privileges to stay in touch with their families and friends via email, messages, voice, and video calls. But every inmate can lose all of their rights if they are caught abusing the services of the Inmate Canteen, which is under the TurnKey Correction System (TKC).

Given the many services provided to communicate with your loved one in prison, it’s not wrong if you try to use them. Just like other prison communication systems, you only need to create an account first in order to use it, and it’s quite simple.

Let’s get started!

How Does the Inmate Canteen Protect Your Personal Data?

If you work with Inmate Canteen, you definitely have to provide your personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, and bank account. Sure, you might be wondering whether your data is safe or not.

No worries! Inmate Canteen actually protects your personal and payment information with Transmission Link Security (TLS) protocol version 1.2. The data you entered in Inmate Canteen is authenticated using a security certificate issued by a registered certification authority (CA) and encrypted using a 256-bit encryption key.

Sure, your personal information is stored in databases located on computers in secure data centers that are physically protected by electronic security systems, including electronic coded door locks.

The TKC system limits access to any information to certain personnel, meaning that only personnel with legitimate business needs are permitted access.
