How To: Shop Safely Online This Holiday Season

If you are new to online shopping, or plan to make some last-minute online purchases before Christmas, here are some tips to help you along the way.

  • Be sure to check out websites like Retail Me Not to see if you can get any discount codes for online orders.
  • Make sure your computer is protected from hackers and potential viruses. Keep all your antivirus software up to date, make sure if you have a WiFi connection that it is password protected, and always download the latest security updates for your software and hard drive.
  • Only make purchases from well-known, secure websites. If the site looks sketchy, it probably has sketchy people running it. Follow your gut intuition.
  • Ensure your payment goes through a secure page.
