Payment line

Indeed, you no longer need to waste your time and wait your turn at the level of a long row to pay an invoice, just a simple click on the web and your payment will be made and validated in a few minutes. minutes.

But the question is what is this online payment method secure?

Take the example of payment by credit card !!

Before writing your credit card number and the last 3 digits on the back of your card in the « visual cryptogram » signature area on a web page, always check that you are sending your bank details in encrypted form. This translates to a URL page address beginning with « https » instead of « http » and the appearance of a closed padlock at the bottom left or right of your browser. On some websites, you may be asked for additional code provided by your bank for online purchases.

But we must be careful because the padlock does not guarantee the reliability, honesty or security of the site itself, but only the security of communications between you and the server.
