Browser Cues

Your browser will display visual cues to let you know whether you are on a secure connection. You should not enter any personal information on an unsecured connection.

The most common browser cue is the lock image in the address bar at the top of the browser window to indicate a secure connection. The chart below provides a link to download the most current version of a browser, as well as a sample image of a lock icon to indicate a secure connection.

Browser Secure Connection Non-Secure Connection
Mozilla Firefox (current version) No Lock
Microsoft Internet Explorer (current version*) No Lock
Google Chrome (current version) No Lock
Apple Safari (current version) No Lock

*See Microsoft's Lifecycle Support policy for Internet Explorer for more information about supported versions.

To view the encryption certificate, click on the image of the closed lock in the address bar of your browser window. A small frame displaying site security information will appear.

For additional information on your browser's cues, refer to the browser's Help section.
