The following signs may indicate that a website is untrustworthy. Check these carefully before inputting personal or financial details:
The padlock symbol is missing from the browser (even though there is a padlock on the website itself), indicating that there is no SSL certificate for the website. SSL certificates activate the padlock and the https protocol and allow secure connections from a web server to a browser. Typically, SSL is used to secure credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, and more recently is becoming the norm when securing browsing of social media sites.
There is no https:// in the address bar, meaning that your data will not be transmitted securely.
The URL doesn't match the name of the shop, which is suspicious.
The checkout page is asking for your PIN number, no website should ever ask for your PIN number.
There is no privacy or returns policy, which means the website may be illegitimate.
There is no contact information on the website, meaning you may not have anyone to contact in the event of an issue or a problem.
