How do I know whether to trust a website in Microsoft Edge?

If you see a lock button next to a website’s address in Microsoft Edge, it means:
What you send and receive from the website is encrypted, which makes it difficult for anyone else to get to this info.


The website is verified, which means the company running the site has a certificate proving they own it. Click the lock button to see who owns the site and who verified it.
While a gray lock means that the website is encrypted and verified, a green lock means that Microsoft Edge considers the website more likely to be authentic. That’s because it’s using an Extended Validation (EV) certificate, which requires a more rigorous identity verification process.

  1. Naïve that be me, into modernity, example this Windows 10, purchased at Best Buy, advise prior no, not to buy new computer, Toshiba I had bought lets say approx. 3 years ago this Windows 10 touch screen, my perception Windows 10 in its introduction to Microsoft mess ‘n with me, I became so attached to writing, composing every night till morning light, the halting factor my writing days, Toshiba done.
    Despite comments from OSU I ventured out to Best Buy, very touching this touch screen, in fact Windows 10 mess’s with me no so just a simply questioning why not step up to the times, modernity’s the name of the game and what is more valuable money or ingenuity; like to close with a quote from book Romanticism.
    “Enjoyment divorced from labor, a means to an end, a effort from a reward, everlastingly the wheel spins, man becomes a fragment, nothing but a fragment. Everlastingly he hears the monotonous sound of the wheel he’s spinning he never develops his sense of sensory self, he never puts his stamp on humanity only on himself, he only becomes an imprint of his occupation and the knowledge he realizes.”
    My purpose in attending OSU Mansfield summed briefly, “my mission is but to serve.”

  2. I would like to ask Microsoft about a man, who claims to work for Microsoft, who has tried to get into my Bank Account. I had to close the old account and open up a new account. Does this happen very often and if it does, what can I do about it? The mans name is: Neil John, Telephone: 888-819-0950 Ext 114, Address: 131 U S Highway 46, Lodi, Jersey o7466.

    Thank You,

  3. Really?! Microsoft says YouTube is encrypted? I call bullshit on this. Everybody knows YouTube is widely popular viewed website. Cut the crap in encrypting every website we go to and lock them on us! Your new internet explorer Edge SUCKS!
