Holiday Crime Prevention: Online Shopping

Online offers convenience for consumers, but it also provides opportunities for scammers and cybercriminals to take advantage. With a few simple tips, you can shop with confidence and peace of mind not just on Cyber Monday, but everyday!

• Use a secure wi-fi network.

Update your devices with the latest security features.

• Don’t click on enticing emails or pop-ups. Go directly to the company website instead.

• Use strong passwords.

• Consider using a credit card rather than a debit card.

• Keep an eye on your financial accounts for fraudulent activity.

• Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is!
