Online browsing and purchasing has become more common in today’s world, but with that convenience also comes risk. Whenever using a site involving any kind of financial transaction or entering of personal information, be sure to check that the website is protected and secure first. How do you do this? Look for a lock symbol somewhere in your browser, or be sure that the website URL begins with https://. When your transaction is completed, be sure to sign out of the site before closing down your device.
Take the extra moment to check and be sure that you’re using a secure site, which helps reduce your risk of becoming a victim of fraud!
