Ever wondered if the e-commerce website we visit while shopping online is real and secure?

 Here are some ways to find out:-

1. If the website you are browsing for offers very cheap deals, it is a good idea to look for the authenticity and legitimacy of that website.

2. Note the URL / Domain Name. The unusual name is almost false. Although the name is unusual, some fake websites may look like real websites.

3. If you see a website address with random letters/numbers, check and go ahead. Cybercriminals are duplicating websites and replacing domain names. The website address is organized randomly with similar letters /numbers that look like those of the original organization.

4. Fake Websites Web pages are mostly circulated through subdomains. eg: shop.hubcenter.com

5. Also check the extension when checking the domain name.

6. The official website will have good grammar and spelling. There may be no typos.

7. The best way to find out if a shopping website is fake is through customer reviews. When you want to shop on an unfamiliar website, checking previous customer reviews can help you understand shopping experiences. Poor customer feedback can be found on some of the best complaint sites as customer reviews. It’s good to remember that reviews may not always reflect the majority of experiences.

8. YouTube can be useful for detecting fake shopping websites. Many individuals make recordings of deceitful sites and show counterfeit items or bad experiences they get.

9. Look at the URL of the website. Starting 'HTTPS instead of 'HTTP means that the site is secured with a TLS / SSL certificate. Browsers will show a little lock on the location bar to show that the site is secure with TLS encryption. A safe site encodes your information travel with the goal that programmers can not see or take the data as it is moved from your PC to the company's server. Even for a domain similar to or slightly different from a popular domain (for example https://flippcart.com/), it is not difficult to obtain an SSL certificate if the domain is owned.

10. There are some indicators that can help you know if a company is real or not. Address and phone number, return/exchange policy, privacy statement, refund policy, and customer support will be provided.

11. You can check who has registered the website https://www.whois.com/whois/. If the required data such as ownership, phone number, and email address are not found, the website may be considered fake.

12. Check the Google Transparency Report. Find out if there is any insecure content on the website. You can use this link https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search.
