How to tell if a website is secure

Customers will know that they have an active SSL/TLS session with a website when their browser displays the padlock icon in the address bar.

A secure site is accessed via https:// rather than http://.

A site’s SSL/TLS certificate can be viewed by clicking on the padlock icon. Pay particular attention to the information under Details, which provides validated company information (if any).
