3Gstore.com with EV SSL: Now even more Secure


3Gstore.com is one of the first in the industry to offer the latest security for our customers.

Extended Validation SSL Certificates (also known as EV SSL) were created in direct response to the rise in internet scams and online fraud to make it easier for people transacting online to know that the sites they are using are secure. 3Gstore.com meets those stringent requirements (not every company can get one or pass the requirements), and we are one of the first wireless companies to be implementing EV SSL technology on our online store's site.

How do you know when you are visiting a web site that offers this extra security?

The Internet Explorer 7's address bar will turn green when you are on a page that asks for confidential information, like when placing a Verizon or Sprint Order from 3Gstore.com. Also, when you are purchasing an antenna, router, or amplifier, you will also see green in the address bar.

Many shopping sites may be collecting your private information (credit card, SSN, etc.) and then emailing this private information over the internet using in clear text, which is very bad. One way to determine this is to look at the URL that you started with and see if it switches to another site. If it does, then it is likely that the order form info is being collected by a different site or company. One that you may not have intended to deal with! Additionally, many sites may show the padlock that indicates the connection is SSL encrypted, BUT that doesn't indicate the company has gone through the rigorous 3rd party validation that is required to get an 'Extended Validation' SSL certificate, like we have done at 3Gstore.com
