The world of shopping has shifted drastically to the online world.
But we’ve all heard those horror stories where online forgery robs you of everything you own.
We want to take you through the steps on how to stay safe while you shop online and the trick of the trades you need to look out for.
Check in with your bank that the charges are accurate and correspond to the items that you bought, making sure that they didn’t over charge you or put any hidden charges. Don’t wait for the end of the month until your bill comes in, check it regularly to stay up to date and make sure there isn’t any fraudulent behavior going on.
Logging out of sites and making sure that your details aren’t autosaved by them is much safer, it would be better to re-enter your card details every time you make a purchase.
If you ever have any questions, concerns, or suspicions, inform your bank immediately and they will be able to block your card, keep everything safe and keep any unwanted transactions from getting through. If you follow all these steps you should never have to worry about your online safety. Because at the end of the day, we take measures for our personal and physical safety, why not take the same measures for our online presence?
