TD Secure Email

Protecting the privacy and security of your information is a top priority at TD, which is why we use TD Secure Email to communicate with you. It’s as if we've written our emails in a secret language that only you, our customer, can read and understand. This is what we call an 'encrypted email.

How to use the TD Secure Email system

When you receive the registration email from a TD employee, the subject line will read “You have a new TD Secure Email message from John Smith."

This email has all the details you'll need to complete the registration process, which will be active for 14 days from the date you receive our registration email.

After 14 days, the email will expire and you'll need to contact the TD employee again to have them re-send you the registration details.

To complete the registration:

  1. Use the link in the email to access the TD Secure Email registration page

2. Fill out all the fields, including an alternate email address and your password recovery questions and answers

  • Your answers must be a minimum of 6 characters
  • Remember your password, because you'll need it to access your TD Secure Emails

3. When you're done, select Apply

Once you've completed the registration process, whenever a TD employee sends you a secure email, you'll receive it in your inbox.

To view the message:

  1. Open the secure email
  2. Double-click the PDF attachment
    • Depending on which email service you use (e.g. Gmail, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.), the PDF attachment may appear at the top or bottom of the email

3. Enter the TD Secure Email password you created during the registration process

4. Select OK

5. The email message from the TD employee will now be visible within the PDF attachment.

  • Any files the TD employee attached (e.g. Word or Excel files) will be listed in the attachments pane on the left side – simply double-click to open them.

When you reply to a TD Secure Email, select the Reply link within the PDF itself. This way, your response is sent as a secure, encrypted email.

If you can't remember your TD Secure Email password, you can recover it by visiting our password management page. If you require additional assistance, you can also contact the TD employee who sent you the secure email.


  • To access an older TD Secure Email, you'll need to use the password that was in effect when you initially received the email
  • Your password history is available on our password management page
