A birth certificate is a very personal document with some pretty basic information. Encryption is used every day for online purchases and secures everything from your name and address to credit card information. So, how do they mesh in cyberspace?
How It Works
Online transactions follow a multi-step process to encrypt and decrypt personal information. Once users input their information and forms are submitted, the uploaded details are translated into a code. Encoded data are then transmitted over the internet. When merchants receive the codes, they can process payments as normal.
How to Tell Payments Are Secure
You can tell data you send are being encrypted. Check for HTTPS website addresses, merchant verification, SSL connections, and other hints the merchant is serious about the security of your personal information.
Also, make sure the company you order a birth certificate from is accredited by the Better Business Bureau, and/or has verified Trustpilot reviews.
