      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement that all online shopping websites are secure is false. Not all online shopping websites have the same level of security measures in place.

It is important for users to be cautious and ensure they are using trusted and secure websites for online shopping to protect their personal and financial information.

    The best method of payment to use online is a personal check.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Using a personal check as a method of payment online is not recommended because it involves sharing sensitive banking information, such as bank account number and routing number, which increases the risk of fraud and identity theft. Online payment methods such as credit cards or secure online payment platforms offer better protection against fraud and provide additional security measures.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When making an online purchase, it is typically necessary to provide a name and address. This information is required for various reasons, such as verifying the identity of the buyer, ensuring the delivery of the purchased item to the correct location, and for billing purposes. Additionally, providing a name and address helps to establish trust between the buyer and the seller, as it allows for better communication and accountability throughout the transaction process. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A social security number is not usually required for an online purchase. Online purchases typically require payment information such as credit card numbers or other forms of electronic payment. Social security numbers are more commonly used for identification purposes, such as for employment or government-related matters. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A reputable department store is likely to prioritize the security of its website to protect its customers' information. They would invest in secure payment gateways, encryption, and other measures to ensure a safe online shopping experience. Additionally, reputable stores often have a reputation to uphold and would not want to risk damaging it by having an unsafe website. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that a reputable department store's website is safe to use.

    How can you tell if a website is secure?

    • A.

      You will see an s after https and a lock symbol in the address bar.

    • B.

      It's secure if the website tells you it's secure.

    • C.

      There's no way to tell.

    Correct Answer
    A. You will see an s after https and a lock symbol in the address bar.
    Explanation
    The presence of an "s" after "https" and a lock symbol in the address bar indicates that the website is secure. The "s" in "https" stands for secure, indicating that the website has an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate, which encrypts the data transmitted between the user's browser and the website. The lock symbol further confirms that the website has a valid SSL certificate and that the connection is secure. This ensures that any information shared on the website is protected from unauthorized access.
