Check if sites have encrypted connections before sharing information. Different browsers have different indicators for encrypted connections.

Here's how to tell if a website is secure, if you're a Google Chrome user:

2. A lock sign next to the URL

3. The word "secure" should be green in colour


Tip 3: Handle Personal Information With Care

It is common to come across dubious links that will take you to fraudulent sites.

Such sites could:

1) Be phishing sites
