Keep Your Identity Safe During Your Holiday Shopping

Here are five quick safety tips:

  • Use a credit card rather than a debit card.
  • Read the fine print in terms of service agreements before you buy online.
  • Beware digital buys – such as books and music. Instead of downloads, purchase gift cards.
  • Where to connect – make sure that the WIFI hotspot you are using is secure.
  • Watch the venue – if buying event tickets as gifts, make sure that your credit card is not needed as identification at the time of the event.

Keep safe and enjoy the holidays.
