Shop safely online and in-store on Black Friday and Cyber Monday by following these safety tips:
Only transact on secure websites. Look for the lock image on the toolbar, valid certificates such as VeriSign and secure payment systems such as Pay-U. Beware of ‘incredible deals’ from unknown merchants;
Only trust reputable sites with a secure SSL checkout. Secure site addresses start with “https” instead of “http” and often have a padlock or unbroken key icon to indicate they are protected;
Enable 2-Step Verification. This adds an extra layer of security to your account by preventing anyone from accessing or using your account, even if they know your password;
Do your online shopping in safe places: Do not do your shopping in coffee shops and malls. Many wireless access points, like Wi-Fi hotspots, are unsecured and provide minimal protection against hackers;
Watch out for strange emails and links: Fraudsters are quite good at mimicking known websites, which enables them to easily create emails with fraudulent links in them that look legitimate;
Use strong passwords: Do not create a password that is easy to guess or hack. Use an 8-digit password combination of upper-case letters, symbols and numbers. Only confirm your order details directly through the retailer's site.
If you are not careful, pickpockets can also easily steal items directly from your shopping bags. Stay aware of your surroundings, and never leave your purse, wallet or shopping bags in an unattended cart, on a countertop or bench;
Disable the “tap without a pin” function on your cards to avoid being skimmed. Once the card is run through the skimmer, the data is recorded, and these thieves can sell your information, at which point counterfeit cards are made.
Watch for cashiers who ask to swipe your card for you, turn their backs to you when they swipe your card or temporarily walk away with your card;
Use digital wallets so you don’t have to carry around credit cards that you could easily lose. Instead, your mobile device contains encrypted account information that allows you to make seamless transactions at the retailer;
Pay with cash. This is really the only way to be sure your identity will not be stolen. Of course, most people don’t carry around much cash these days, so you may not have enough with you to pay for large ticket items. Also, when you pull out cash from your wallet, it could make you an easy target for opportunistic thieves;
Set up feedback on your accounts. These alerts are helpful in keeping tabs on your debit/credit card activity and can help you know more immediately if someone else is accessing your personal account.
