How to check you’re secured
One of the most recommended ways to be sure your online transaction is safe is to look for the locked padlock icon in your web browser’s URL bar. When you see the locked padlock it is telling you two things:
- The site you are using has a verified SSL certificate which is valid and usable.
- Your browser has accepted the SSL certificate and has triggered encryption of data between your computer and our site.
In addition, on many modern browsers, the address bar at the top of the browser will turn green. This means that the connection is secured,
Whilst shopping with us, the address in your browser should always start https://www.budgethomefurniture.com.au/
- If you are using a shared computer, always remember to log out once you have finished on any website. Closing your web browser may not be enough and it is always best to use the log out button on our website.
- Never write down your password and always keep it a secret. You should also change your password at regular intervals, or immediately if you suspect it has been compromised.
When creating a password it is best to choose a combination of both numbers and letters. Avoid using parts of your email address, postal address, date of birth or your name.
