The internet has changed the way people shop, communicate and entertain themselves. There are millions of websites where people can transact, and the challenge always comes in identifying a legit site where you will not get scammed. You should always look out for signs that a website is cyber secure, such as:
Use of Secure Encryption
When browsing through a website, you should look at the web address (URL bar) and check for the ‘s’ after Http. Almost every site uses http, but the ‘s’ at the end shows that the site is secure. There will also be a lock sign on the bar. This means that all the communications you will be having with the website are secure and encrypted. It assures you that your information cannot be accessed by a third party.
A website that has been created to scam people always has hints of unprofessionalism. Things are always thrown about haphazardly because their aim is to scam and nothing else. Look out for poor design, content that has not been proofread, spelling errors, badly taken photos, and such like red flags. If they are constantly changing their designs and information without a proper explanation, it could be probably because they are a scam.
Good Contact Information
A cyber-secure website is one that has the contact information that you can use to reach the site owners. They should be able to give their physical location, phone numbers, email address, links to their social media pages, and other features you can use to access them. Any site that is sketchy and does not leave their contact details on their page is probably insecure.
