Tips on purchasing buying online safely with https secure site encrypted

The Difference Between http and https

Maybe you already knew this but I thought it was important enough
to send even if you already know.

FIRST, MANY PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE OF The main difference between
http:// and https://.

It’s all about keeping you secure – HTTP stands for Hyper Text
Transport Protocol. The S (big surprise)stands for “Secure”. If
you visit a website or webpage, 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 ‘unsecure’ 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 never ever enter your credit card number (or other private information) 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. You understand why this is so important, right?

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, there’s no way you’re going to enter sensitive
information like a credit card number.
