Dear Ward Member,
Christmas shopping on-line? Follow our tips for a safer experience.
Software updates – Make sure you’ve installed the latest software & App updates. Criminals use weaknesses in software to attack your devices and steal information such as your payment details.
Email accounts – Use a strong, separate password for your email account. Criminals can use your email to access other online accounts such as those you use for online shopping.
Phishing – Don’t click on a link in an unexpected email or text. The volume of online shopping related phishing emails increases significantly during the holiday period. Remember, if a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Payment methods – Don’t pay for goods or services by bank transfer unless you know and trust the person. Payments via bank transfer offer you no protection if you become a victim of fraud.
