We accept them as necessary, and sometimes even helpful, additions to our browsing experiences. But ads can very easily be used – or misused – by rogue programs.

What are Trust Seals?

Next time you visit your bank’s website to complete a transaction or purchase an item online, take a minute to look around the homepage or on any page that asks you to enter sensitive information. You should see a small logo somewhere on the page that indicates that the site has been verified. This is a trust seal, and it is awarded to sites that are able to demonstrate commitment to good security practices and/or the presence of secure methods for transactions. It can also simply tell a consumer whether or not it is a verified business.
