How to check if a website is secure

Look for the ‘https’ in the address bar, make sure the ‘s’ is on the end, it stands for secure.

Look for the ‘padlock’ icon in the browser not in the web page, some scammers put a fraudulent lock into the webpage to try to fool you.

Double clicking on the padlock will reveal the details of the sites security, if it doesn’t do this the site can’t be trusted.

Good website for information (it’s a tad old but still relevant)
