Can I check whether a web page is secure?

Yes and it is always best to check if the website is secure and especially prior to giving out your credit card details or making a purchase..

 

For instance – when browsing the web, the URLs (web page addresses) start with the letters ‘http’, but with a secure connection the address displayed should always begin with ‘https’ – note the difference being the ‘s’ at the end.

On a secure site you will always find a ‘lock’ icon somewhere in the window of the browser (NOT in the web page display area!). Most high profile websites such as Government sites and banks will be secure.
