The internet has transformed the way in which we shop for the products and services we want.
Making purchases and banking online makes our lives easier, although shopping online doesn't come without its dangers.
- Do not enter personal or payment information on a website that has no padlock in the address bar or https:// at the beginning of the address
- Use reputable companies when shopping online. Research them if you are unsure and establish a physical address and telephone contact details
- Do not pay for items when using an unsecured Wi-Fi connection
- Do not click on links or reply to unsolicited emails from companies you don't recognise.
