How do I know whether to trust a website in Microsoft Edge?

If you see a lock button next to a website’s address in Microsoft Edge, it means:
– What you send and receive from the website is encrypted, which makes it difficult for anyone else to get this information.
– The website is verified, which means that the company running the site has a certificate proving they own it. Click the lock button to see who owns the site and who verified it.

– While a grey lock means that the website is encrypted and verified, a green lock means that Microsoft Edge considers the website more likely to be authentic. That’s because it’s using an Extended Validation (EV) certificate, which requires a more rigorous identity verification process.
