So… Be Safe Onlne, and Think Before “YOU” Click…

Make sure they are a reputable company and that they have security in place for their websites. Be diligent by looking in the address bar for the 2 tell-tale signs they are using security for all your purchases!

1. https:// (please look for the S at the end of http) also…
2. look for a padlock as well, this means that the servicer provider is implementing security into the purchase process!

There are many more things to look for, but for now make sure that sites you shop or purchase from have these two main website security features (which are easily checked procedures). If the site does not use one or both, Please DON’T make a purchase.
