While shopping online is convenient, it’s vital that you keep safe when browsing or purchasing on the internet. Here are a few tips for shopping safely online:

Start by shopping with a trusted website, if you are already familiar with the brand look out for misspellings in the domain to make sure you are on their official website. If you are shopping with a newly discovered retailer, a quick internet search will help you learn about other customer’s experiences.

2. Look for the Lock

To check a website is secure and encrypting your details, look for the padlock symbol next to the website address bar. If you are entering your bank details to make a purchase, always look for the padlock symbol and ensure the website address starts with https://.

3. Keep Yourself Protected

Keep your software and virus protection up-to-date on your computer. If you set up an account with an online shop, create a strong password that includes both lower and upper cases, numbers, and additional symbols, this will add an extra level of security that will keep your account and saved information protected.

4. Connect to a Secure Network

Don’t shop online using a public wi-fi connection, usually your data is not encrypted which means it is easier for your personal information to fall into the wrong hands. A private wi-fi connection will ensure your information is more safe and secure.
