Question and answer
WHAT ARE SOME OF THE FEATURES YOU LOOK FOR IN A WEBSITE TO DETERMINE IF THE SITE IS SECURE
Similar to fraudulent e-mail messages, faked Web sites contain convincing logo graphics and Web links. This makes it hard to tell if they are fraudulent. The best strategy is to not click on links in suspicious messages. [ Some things to look for that legitimate Web sites should have are as follows: SSL Security Legitimate Web sites use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or other security technology to help protect the personal information that you enter when opening a new account and when signing in to the site thereafter. Security is indicated on your browser's status bar by a lock icon.
Additionally, the Web address is preceded by (note the s after http which stands for secure) instead of the usual in the browser's Address bar.A digital certificate for the Web site An additional benefit of SSL is authentication – the process of identifying a Web site to you. SSL provides this benefit by using a digital certificate, which the site presents to your browser when you connect. To view the certificate, double-click the lock icon Lock in the lower-right corner of the browser and examine the Issued to field. ]
