Shop online safely
- Before buying online, check that the site is secure – usually symbolised by a padlock in the address bar. Head to getsafeonline.org for details.
Beware public wi-fi use
- Although public wi-fi networks are great for general use, don’t buy products online over networks such as The Cloud – security is not guaranteed.
Don’t cut out the middleman
- Using 3rd party services such as PayPal can help with online security – the seller won’t see your personal details.
