Edit-For-Me's website uses SSL (Secure Sockets layer) technology for security.
Secure Sockets Layer is a technology that secures the connection between your browser and the website you’re visiting. To verify that SSL is protecting a page, look for a URL beginning with https://, instead of http://, and a green, closed padlock icon. This allows visitors to navigate the website and submit information through a secure connection.
SSL provides three important security benefits:
- Privacy: Encrypts the connection between the browser and web server and securely transmits information (like login credentials) to prevent unauthorised parties from eavesdropping.
- Data integrity: Prevents unauthorized parties from altering data during transmission (like during a Form submission).
- Authentication: Protects against impersonation by requiring web server proof of identity.
