See if the site is using a secure connection (SSL)
If you're entering sensitive personal information on a page, look for a lock icon to the left of the site's URL in the address bar to see if the site uses SSL. SSL is a protocol that provides an encrypted tunnel between your computer and the site you're viewing. Sites can use SSL to prevent third parties from interfering with the information traveling thru the tunnel.
|Icon||What it means|
|The site is not using SSL. This icon displays for http:// sites. Most sites do not need to use SSL because they do not handle sensitive information. Avoid entering sensitive information, such as your credit card information or bank login information, on the page. If sensitive information is being requested on a site not using SSL, consider contacting the website owner.|
|Google Chrome has successfully established a secure connection with the site. Look for this icon and make sure the URL has the correct domain, if you're required to log in to the site or enter sensitive information on the page. If a site uses an Extended Validation SSL (EV-SSL) certificate, the organization's name also appears next to the icon in green text.|
|The site uses SSL, but Google Chrome has detected insecure content on the page. Be careful if you're entering sensitive information on this page. Insecure content can provide a loophole for someone to change the look of the page.|
|The site uses SSL, but Google Chrome has detected either high-risk insecure content on the page or problems with the site's certificate. Do not enter sensitive information on this page. Invalid certificate or other serious https issues could indicate that someone is attempting to tamper with your connection to the site.|
