Cybersecurity Tips for Safer Online Holiday Shopping
The holiday season is a busy time for everyone—especially cyber thieves. While shopping online for the best deals, it’s critical to be aware of common scams and risky online behavior that could ruin the holidays. Keep these tips in mind to better protect yourself:
Be careful when checking e-mail.
The volume of phishing e-mails increases during the holiday season. Don’t trust a deal that sounds too good to be true, because it probably is.
Choose credit over debit.
Better consumer protection against fraud is available when using credit rather than debit. If you ever fall victim to fraud, you’re much more likely to be recompensed for activity on your credit card than your debit card.
Check your browser’s address bar.
Ensure that the online retailers you visit use https in the address bar (e.g., https://www.amazon.com rather than http://www.amazon.com) so that any payment information you enter is better secured.
Monitor your financial accounts.
Contact your bank or credit card company immediately if you notice something suspicious. The sooner you say something, the better chance you have of remediating any potential loss.
