In addition to SafeKey, here are some things to be aware of to help protect yourself when shopping online:
The web address should start with ‘https://’ – the ‘s’ stands for secure.
It should have a padlock symbol in the browser address bar.
In some browsers, the address bar or the company name is in green.
Log out of every site, every time you’ve registered your details, simply closing the browser isn’t enough.
Choose strong, unique passwords (not your child’s birthday, for example).
Using a secure password manager may be helpful.
Keep your anti-virus software up to date and install a firewall.
Make sure your spam filter is switched on.
