  • Internet Security and Identity Theft Concerns on Cyber Monday

    Withe the many recent hacks/security breaches such as Apple, USPS, Home Depot, and Target - many online shoppers a leery of inputting their credit cards and debit cards online.

    If you are shopping the best Cyber Monday Sales, know that good e-tailers/online retailers (like us!) will always offer the option of dialing in Toll Free to order so you can feel more secure about giving your payment information.

    One source recommends these steps to protect yourself as well:

    * Shop on secure websites: Avoid accidentally clicking on infected sites by looking for the SSL certificate and ensure the site starts with https:// and has a padlock icon.

    * Keep your passwords secure: Use different passwords for each of your online accounts, and change each password every three months in case your data is hacked.

    * Update anti-virus software regularly: Cyber criminals are always developing new viruses to hack into your devices. To ensure your computer is protected from the latest threats, install anti-virus software and configure it to update automatically.

    * Delete apps you don’t use: Information stored in mobile applications, like passwords, is vulnerable to Internet hacking. Get rid of apps you no longer use.

    * Swipe your own card: When you’re shopping in-store, always swipe your own card or ask the clerk to swipe the card in front of you to ensure they don’t copy any personal information.
