About Polygon Bridge If you want to move funds from Ethereum to Polygon, you must go through the so-called “bridge”, and the “bridge” works through a locking and exit mechanism. On Polygon, users can choose to use two types of bridges: Plasma Bridge and PoS Bridge. Plasma provides advanced security with plasma exit mechanism. It will take 7 days to transfer your funds back to Etnereum, while the PoS security will only take about 3 hours back to Etnereum since it is provided by the PoS validators.
