Dear Sassy: How can I tell if a website is secure?
~Probably lacking Security

Dear Probably: Great question! You can never be too secure when you are online! Shoot, you can never be too secure when you are off line! If you look up in the address bar you frequently will see: "http://" but if the site is secure you will see: "https://" The "s" designates that the site is a secure one. Also another identifying factor is the little padlock on the bottom right hand side of your internet browser window. If you would like to be extra, and I mean extra, cautious you can double click on the padlock to gain additional information on the security certificate.
