What is An Ssl Certificate?

An SSL certificate or Secure Socket Layer ensures your information is safe when using the internet via a digital certificate. The certificate insures the site you are visiting is the actual site, (banks) instead of redirected to a pseudo-sites. Pseudo- sites hi-jack other sites and gather your information to be used to perform identity theft. The same as your driver’s license identifies who you are to others, the SSL Certificate identifies your computer to others and visa versa.
