Thawte Trusted Site Seal

How to Get the Thawte Trusted Site Seal

The Thawte Trusted Site Seal is a globally recognized trust mark, available for display in 18 different languages, and included free with the purchase of a Thawte® SSL Certificate. When a seal is downloaded, choose the size and language most appropriate for the web site.

  • Download your Thawte Trusted Site Seal
  • Copy and paste the seal script into the appropriate web pages.

Where to Display the Seal

Secured Seal Example Placement

Thawte recommends adding the seal script to a secured home page, purchasing page, sign-in page, and all pages in a secured domain where customers need assurance. The seal will display within about 2 hours after installation and show that the site is secured by Thawte.

What the Seal Verification Page Displays

Users click the Thawte Trusted Site Seal on web pages in the secured domain to confirm the site’s identity. A seal verification page will open in a new browser window and show the verified domain name; the certificate authority, which performed the authentication (Thawte); and the certificate’s validity period.

What users see when they click the seal

SSL certificates confirmed with full organization validation and Extended Validation also display the organization name and location in the seal verification page.
