Trust seals are one big way to protect your security while you are shopping online, and while we know that there are fake trust seals out there, it is still incredibly beneficial for you to look for trust seals. Luckily there is a way to find out if the trust seal is real or if it is a fake, it will just take a little more effort on your part.
Instead of just looking to see if a site has a trust seal on it you may have to take it a step further and actually click on the seal. If the seal is real it should take you to a page that will verify things about the business, etc. but if the seal is a fake it probably won’t lead anywhere but will just be a copy of the picture. Unfortunately the copy of the picture of the trust seal tricks quite a few people who do not realize that you actually have to click on the picture.
If you put forth this little bit of extra effort you will definitely be rewarded with all the benefits that trust seals provide. Not only will you have the websites guarantee that they are an honest company who will protect and secure your information, but now you have an unrelated third party who is also willing to vouch for this companies security.
I don’t know about you, but I will not even risk shopping on sites that do not have trust seals, and now I know that is also important to actually click on the trust seals. I know that by just doing these small things it will go a long way in protecting me against all the hackers and other security issues out there. So to answer the question, YES Trust Seals Really Matter!
