Padlock

I read on MSN to look for the "padlock" symbol whenever you bank on-line. I can't find that symbol on any of the sites except for one. I am 99.999% sure I am not on any bogus sites. Is this a little misleading and they aren't all going to have it?

Check up on the address bar, at the very end. Also, make sure there's an s after the http: A secure bank site should read https://

padlock

The "S" is there OK but no padlock at end of address line, bottom, or anywhere. On the one that it IS there it is right next to where it says "log in".

You could be using an older version of IE, in which case the padlock is at the bottom of the screen rather than next to the address bar.
