Credit Card Security

How to quickly tell if a site is secure:
- When you are at the point where you asked to enter credit card or personal info make sure the address bar has https and not just http - the "s" means you are at a secure site.
If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer look for a yellow padlock on the bottom right corner of the browser (Netscape users look for a Key), FireFox users will see their entire address bar highlighted in yellow.
- You will see both of these features on the Registration page, Login and Account page, and the Credit Card Processing section of The Northern Bead Company
