Padlock Icon on Browser Toolbar

  xania 12:15 28 Sep 2006

The lastest PC Advisor recommends (P104) that the padlock icon shiould be embedded in the browser toolbar rather than in the web page. I believe this will be an option in IE7, but how do you do this is IE6.

It should already be there in the status bar at the bottom.

My reading of the PCA comment is that when you make a transaction (which of course is when it appears) ensure that it is indeed there rather than somewhere else on the displayed web page because it could be a spoof padlock.

Incidentally, I noticed on a recent purchase I made the padlock is at the top of the browser with IE7.RC1

That's what I thought, but my reading indicates that it shoul dbe in the toolbar at the top?

If you cannot see the status bar (its the one with the word internet in it) go to View and check next to status bar and it will appear.

IE 6. it has always been at the bottom and in the browser status bar.
