According to Forbes, online shopping is on the rise. Here are tips for keeping your financial information secure while making online purchases:
1. S is for Security. Be sure the website you're purchasing from has a URL that reads: "https://" and NOT "http://"
2. H is for Home. Shop on a private, password-protected wifi. Don't make purchases with your credit card on any public wifi.
3. O is for One. Use just ONE credit card for online purchases. That way it's easier to keep track of any suspicious activity.
4. P is for protect. Don't send any personal information via email.
