It’s important to be secure whenever you shop online. On Cyber Monday, cybercriminals may try to take extra advantage of online shoppers. Here are some tips to protect your information:
- Shop from trustworthy and established websites only.
- Make sure your information is encrypted. Look for URLs that begin with https:// and have a closed padlock icon next to them.
- Use a credit card when you shop online. There are laws that protect you if you find fraudulent credit card charges. You may not have the same level of protection for your debit cards.
- Check your statements and record of your purchases. Compare these to your bank statements.
