What is a secured personal loan vs an unsecured loan?

An unsecured loan is not backed by any security, so in the event that a loan is not repaid the lender does not have any security it can recover to repay the amount owing.

Secured loans are less risky for lenders and so tend to have more favourable terms, such as lower interest rates or higher lending amounts, than unsecured loans.
