    When you are on a web site do you check the SSL certificate?

    Do you review the site or perhaps use an extension tool like ?

    Some sites even today don’t fully encrypt all parts of the site.  This ensures that all part of the browser experience are protected with a SSL handshake between you and the web site.  This is to make sure that other sites and attackers can’t “sniff” the transmission … such as a chat window or a text box in the window of a site.  Mind you Firefox has added this natively since version 83.

    So?  Do you check if all sites have padlocks on them?
