When we carry out an online shopping transaction, we key in our personal details, bank related information, and even our credit card numbers.
There are times when the system is not secure, and others can hack into our account and use these information. We might receive a huge credit card bill, containing a list of items we never bought or get charged for trips we never made. These issues are all part of the security problems faced on the internet. In order to prevent these type of things form happening, there is something called a Secure Sockets layer (SSL) that was put in place and now, every site should have a SSL certificate before they begin their operations.
Even while we are sending emails, or chatting with friends, there are ways in which our data and personal information can be accessed by others.
