🎁 5 tips for safe online shopping this Christmas:

👀 Use a secure payment method to protect your personal and financial information. Some options include using a payment service like PayPal or a digital wallet like Apple Pay or Google Pay.

👀 Shop with reputable retailers: It’s important to shop with retailers you know and trust. Look for retailers that have a good reputation and a secure website. You can check if a website is secure by looking for “HTTPS” at the beginning of the web address or a padlock icon in your browser’s address bar.

👀 Be wary of too-good-to-be-true deals: If an online deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Be cautious of offers that seem too cheap or discounts that seem too high, as these could be scams.

👀 Use strong, unique passwords: It’s important to use strong, unique passwords for each of your online accounts to help protect against hackers. Avoid using the same password for multiple accounts, and consider using a password manager to help you generate and store strong, unique passwords.

👀 Be cautious of emails and texts from unfamiliar sources: Be careful about opening emails or texts from unfamiliar sources, as these could be phishing attempts or attempts to steal your personal information.
