9 Tips for Safe Online Shopping

9 Tips for Safe Online Shopping

With the Corona Virus keeping many of us inside and businesses locked down, online shopping has become even more important. Whether you use a desktop computer, laptop or a mobile device, check out these simple ways to help keep your information protected when shopping online.
 
1. Keep your Operating System and Virus Protection Software Up to Date
   Updates often fix security vulnerabilities and these threats change all the time!
 
2. Don't Use Public Wifi to Make Your Online Purchases
    After all, the point is to be at home, so don't be tempted to make a purchase using public wifi. Using your mobile
    device to create a personal hotspot is also more secure than public wifi networks, even if they have a passcode.
 
3. Look for Secure Webpages
    Use webpages that begin with ‘https’. You’ll also know the site is secure when it features a locked padlock symbol
    in the browser.
 
 
4. Whenever Possible, Shop Through the App
    If you're using a mobile device, use the retailer's mobile app. This offers more protection than a mobile browser-based
    transaction.
 
5. Read Reviews
    Search engines are your friend. You will almost always be able to find a review of a shopping site.

 
6. Contact the Seller
    If you’re buying from an online store for the first time, use the contact details to get in touch with the seller. If you don’t
    get a response, stay away.
 
7. Trust your Instinct
    Scammers are capitalizing on concerns surrounding Covid-19 and making offers for difficult and even nom-existent
    goods. If you see an offer online that looks too good to be true, it probably is.

8. Keep your Payment Information Safe
    Never send your card numbers or payment information via email, text message, or messaging apps.
 
9. Consider Card-on-File
    Consider saving your Security Bank of Kansas City Debit Mastercard® with trusted online merchants in which you
    frequently shop.
