There is a de facto standard among web browsers to display a "lock" icon somewhere in the window of the browser (NOT in the web page display area).
Click (or double-click) on it to see details of the site's security. Some fraudulent web sites are built to imitate the lock icon of your browser so it is wise to test the functionality built into this lock icon. It is important to know your browser. Check your browser's help file or contact the makers of your browser software if you are unsure how to use this functionality.
