Be smart when you shop online

Fact: The number one cybercrime of 2017 was related to online shopping: non-payment for or non-delivery of goods purchased.

TekTip:

  • Shop at websites you trust
  • Only shop on sites that start https: s stands for “secure”
  • Avoid shopping while using public Wi-Fi
  • Pay with a credit card: it protects you more than a debit card

Your credit card information is something you should trust to few businesses.  Make sure you’re giving it to legitimate online stores only.
