If you're shopping online, or you're about to enter sensitive information such as bank details, make sure that you can see the padlock symbol on your browser bar. This indicates that the website you're about to use is safe and that you'll be sending your information in a secure way. If you double click the padlock, you'll be able to see certificate information for the site. Make sure this is current and that the company it has been issued to is the same one you are browsing. The padlock should appear in the window frame of the browser, not on the site itself.
