How do you know if the site you are visiting is safe? Hubby told me an interesting fact about online security. You might know this already but I still want to share this to those who don't. He said that when the URL of the website you are visiting starts with https, it is safe because the additional s stands for secure . Businesses, especially banks, pay for this additional feature for the purpose of their clients security. But this https don't show up until you go to your log in part. Check out your bank's website and see... Tell me if it has the additional feature. This is how you can tell a phishing email. Say for example if you use paypal, there are spoof email being sent by spammer but their only consist of http while the real paypal is https.
