inspire trust online

The browser’s padlock plus https in the address bar show that a site is encrypted, but how do Internet users know it’s your web site? With concerns about identity theft and online imposters on the rise, how do users know your web site should be trusted? They look for trust marks that they recognize and your verified name in the browser address bar.

Display the Thawte Trusted Site Seal

Concerns about fraud and identity theft have made users more hesitant to share personal information online. However, 86% of online shoppers feel more confident about entering personal information on sites using security indicators, such as a trust mark (Synovate/GMI, 2008).

What users see when they click the seal

To give your users the confidence to click, display the Thawte® Trusted Site Seal, a globally recognized trust mark. The seal is a bit of code that can be posted on any or all pages within a domain that is secured by a Thawte® SSL Certificate. Learn more: Thawte Trusted Site Seal.

Show the Green Address Bar

For maximum trust, choose an SSL Web Server Certificate with EV, issued with the industry’s highest standard of authentication. Extended Validation works with high-security browsers to turn the address bar green, showing that it is safe to proceed. When your customers see the green address bar combined with the Thawte Trusted Site Seal, they will have many reasons to trust your site and complete their transactions.
