I am sure that we are all shopping online this year for at least one gift, here are a couple of quick tips for the holidays and shopping online to keep you safe.

  1. Be careful of emails and text messages offering amazing bargains or claiming there’s been a problem with a package delivery.
  2. Shop with reputable retailers, It’s best to shop directly with online retailers you know and trust.
  3. Beware of amazing deals, if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
  4. Do not shop on public Wi-Fi, these are notorious for being hacked, instead use your cellular data when out and about.
  5. Use strong passwords
  6. Pay with credit, not debit
  7. Track your purchases and make sure to get a confirmation email of your purchase

Stay safe online and enjoy the holidays!
