How to be sure that you’re sharing information on a genuine, secure webpage within the official Maxis website.
Here’s what to look for before you enter or submit any sensitive information (e.g. username, password, payment information) via an online form:
1. The web address begins with www.maxis.com.my
2. If you see ‘https’ at the beginning of a web address in your browser or a padlock symbol next to the address bar, you’re on a secure website.
3. You can always click the padlock icon and look up the certificate to check that the website is what it claims to be.
