I read your column about online shopping, and I understand much of it. However, I am blind, and I am unable to see if there is a padlock on the screen. I can see the https. How do I know if there is a padlock or not?

If you look at the lower right hand bottom of the screen (next to the Internet word) you should see a picture of a lock If it shows nothing then it is not a secure site.
