Did you know that if you are shopping on line or doing anything on line where you want security , there should be a little padlock down at the bottom next to the globe that is left of the word internet. Also the browser should have an s before the http. so it should say shttp: whatever site you are on. Like Pay Pal and other places where money is exchanged and secure information is given. If it isnt there then the site is not secure and you shouldnt give any information you dont want anyone and their brother having. I see so many people on here writing about spamming sites and getting spammed. So this is a good guideline to go by. Hope it helps someone. It sure helps me. Just have to remember to look.

Good point. I am using the Seamonkey browser and in the bottom left hand corner is the security icon which tells me whether my connection is secure or not.

Actually, the "s" comes after the http. So it sould be "https".
