How can I be sure my credit card information is secure?

There are two good rules of thumb for this.

  • First, always check on the website you're purchasing from. There will usually be a notice letting you know that your credit card information is secure. A common term in this notice will be "SSL" protection.

  • The second thing you can look for is the browser notice that you have entered a secure area. This is usually only on the page where your actual address or credit card information is entered.

Depending on your browser, this can take a few forms. Some browsers will display a pop-up window with a notice to inform you that you are on a secure page.

In almost all browsers though, the sure indication is to look at the bottom right of your browser window. You should see a tiny icon of a closed lock.
