Simple Internet Security Protection

INTERNET SECURITY PROTECTION IS VITAL


With so much trading and transference of money in everyday Internet transactions you should be aware of the following.

It boils down to the simple question:

"http" & "https"

Do you Know The Difference?


Once in a while, something comes along that is of real importance.

This is it.

What is the difference between http and https?

The main difference between http:// and https:// is:

Keeping you secure - HTTP stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

The S stands for "Secure" - so no great surprise there. If you visit a website or web page, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following:

http://. This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular 'unsecured language. In other words, it is possible for someone to "eavesdrop" on your computer's conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site. This is why you should never ever enter your credit card number in an http website!

But if the web address begins with https:// that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.

Now you can understand why this is so important. If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn't, you should NEVER enter sensitive information.....such as a credit card number 354758699 etc.

Please take note, be warned and take this simple step towards Internet security protection.

Many sites also feature the golden padlock which is usually visible in the bottom right hand corner of a payment page. This is another indication of a secure site.
