Your payment on IconPrincess is secure
Be totally reassured, on IconPrincess the payment methods offered are encrypted.
The concept is simple, using an encryption algorithm, a communication channel will be created between two or more computers, after an authentication step. It will then be difficult for malicious people to get hold of the various data on the Internet.
Application of SSL on banking transactions
Secure Sockets Layers (SSL) is used for online banking transactions. To get a concrete idea of how it works, we need to take a simple example.
You are on our site and you would like to buy one of our lovely used luxury bags. To do so, you will need to enter some rather sensitive data, such as your credit card number.
If you are in an online shop that does not use SSL, your data can be found in clear text on the Internet. To avoid this kind of disaster scenario, the SSL protocol we use will encrypt your information..
Therefore, your credit card number will not circulate on the Web, or at least it will not be readable.
How to recognize the SSL protocol on a site?
In the majority of cases, you know that you are on a site that uses Secure Sockets Layers by looking at the URL. More precisely, if the URL begins with HTTPS, we are sure that the site is secure.
Moreover, a small padlock appears on the URL bar if the site you are visiting is secure. In some cases, the color green is present on the navigation bar.
But this varies depending on the browser you are using. For example, on chrome, part of the URL is green while on Internet Explorer the background of the area is entirely green.
If you click on the small padlock, it will open a small bubble that gives information about the securing the iconPrincess website.
