Stay Safe


Online shoppers can be at risk for identity theft, unless they know how to shop online safely. Follow these tips to protect your identity when shopping:

  • Never give out personal information in a pop-up window, which may not be related to the website you are visiting.
  • Don't make online credit card charges unless they are handled through a secure site or in an encrypted mode. You'll know it's secure if the page you are on has a URL beginning with https instead of http.
  • Always read the privacy policy of the website you are purchasing from to make sure your information stays private and won't be sold to third parties.
  • Make sure your computer's security software is up-to-date before shopping online.
