Security when clicking onto a website confounds me. Some sites put the section of the site you are wanting ahead of the web address. Example http://photos.kodak.com and some put the section after example http://kodak.com/photos. These examples are just made up but I hope you understand what I’m saying. How do I know if I’m on the secure website I’m supposed to be on? At times I see other addresses flashing by on the toolbar that are not the site I clicked on before the actual site appears.
This simple question opens up a veritable Pandora’s box when it comes to understanding URLs and what is safe to click on.
The concepts are simple, but how those concepts can be combined is complex, particularly if someone is attempting to deceive you.
