Where to Display the Seal

Secured Seal Example Placement

Thawte recommends adding the seal script to your secured home page, buy page, sign-in page, and all other pages in your secured domain where customers need assurance. The seal will display within about 2 hours after installation and show that your site is secured by Thawte.

What the Seal Verification Page Displays

Users click the Thawte Trusted Site Seal on web pages in your secured domain to confirm your site’s identity. A seal verification page opens in a new browser window and shows the verified domain name; the certificate authority, which performed the authentication (Thawte); and the certificate’s validity period.

What users see when they click the seal

SSL certificates confirmed with full organization validation and Extended Validation also display the organization name and location in the seal verification page. To learn more about which SSL certificate is right for your organization, go to Get Started with SSL.
