This encryption scrambles details such as credit card numbers, billing details, and delivery addresses so that other computers are unable to decipher the information, ensuring your privacy and security.

To ensure you are accessing a secure server, look for the unbroken key or closed lock symbol located either at the bottom left or top right of your browser window. If it appears, then SSL is active.

You can double-check by looking at the URL. If SSL is active, then the first characters of the URL will read https:// rather than just http://. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and your computer.
