Safe and Secure Online Shopping

Safe-and-Secure-Online-Shopping

Whether you are looking for that perfect gift for a significant other around Christmastime or seeking inspiration for a birthday present in June, it has never been easier to find what you need online. From novelty stores that sell massive gummy worms to retail chains that allow you to order and pick up what you want on the same day, shopping has never been more fun or convenient that it is right now.

How to Keep Your Accounts Protected

Though it may seem simple to one-click anywhere on the internet, you can be at risk of identity theft any time you log on. Especially around the holiday season, most people are choosing to do the majority of their shopping online. Unfortunately, this is also when scammers may put forth the most effort to attack vulnerable consumers. However, there are measures that can be taken to ensure your hard-earned money stays safely in your account until you are ready to spend it.

The first thing you should be aware of is it is not a good idea to save any personal bank information online. This includes credit card numbers and passwords. It can be easy to add an extra layer of protection to your account that can ensure potential hackers have to work hard to steal your information. Some may require phone verification before any transactions. Using a digital wallet, such as Apple or Google Pay, may also help keep your account safe.

Don’t purchase anything from public Wi-Fi either, as this can make it a little too easy to access your personal information. When you do have to use public Wi-Fi, make sure it is a secured connection if at all possible. Though it may not ensure you are absolutely safe, it can make it difficult for thieves to access your information. Avoid automatic connecting by turning off the function on your device. Make sure any Bluetooth functions are shut off as well, because the first thing many scammers look for is open Bluetooth devices which can allow their technology to communicate with yours without you even knowing it.

The best option is to never assume you are safe online even with all necessary precautions. Having strong passwords and keeping your information hidden can be some of the best ways to help add a level of security to any accounts you may have. If you are looking for a way to add an extra layer of protection to your email and take some of the stress out of your shopping experience, come check us out!
