STAY SAFE ON LINE

Keep this in mind!! Especially those of you who order online.

This is how hackers get your information.

Do you know what is the difference between http and https?

Don’t know how many of you are aware of this difference, but it is worth sending to anyone.

The main difference between http://and https:// is it’s all about keeping you secure. HTTP stands for HyperText Transfer Protocol. The “S” stands for “secure”. If you visit a website or web page 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 “unsecured” 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.

Therefore, you never ever enter your credit card numbers 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 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://.┬áIf it doesn’t, you should NEVER enter sensitive information such as a credit card number, SS #, etc.
