To ensure that information sent to a website is secure, check for the padlock icon on the web browser's address bar. Also look for the HTTPS URL, which is the secure version of the standard HTTP protocol. Not every web site is secure, and for non-important items that's fine. But for financial institutions or other websites where sending information is important, always check for the padlock icon, the HTTPS URL, and confirm that the web address matches the site you must visit.
