  2. Online Security Requires More Than A Secure Certificate
Most financial institutions and online auto loan applications websites utilize 128 bit secure socket layer technology, to encrypt your personal data as it transmitted from the online auto loan application to a database stored on a server.

If a site does not use this minimal level of online protection, we at recommend that you not send any of your personal information to them. According to Microsoft® you can tell you're visiting a secure website if: secure website

If you are visiting the website with a secure connection, you will be able to identify the website through the site's certificate. A secure or encrypted website address will begin with HTTPS rather than HTTP, and you will often see some sort of icon in the browser such as a padlock indicating that the website is secure. Secure connections use certificates to identify the website and to encrypt your connection so that it will be more difficult for a hacker to view.
