Hello guys ,

     As the topic of this post suggests, i am going to talk about the ways to stay safe while shopping online. All around the world people shop online , because it is incredibly convenient and quick. With so many Pros,Online Shopping has many cons as well. Online Shoppers can easily fall pray to online scams and frauds. One should always be careful while shopping online. Anything connected to the internet can be a reason you ending up being scammed, which is why everyone should be alert about malicious emails and scam sites.


     To save yourself from being scammed while shopping online, here are some Online Shopping Safety Tips:

  • Never give your social security number to anyone, if anyone asks you while checking out, it is probably a scam.
  • Always read reviews about the site , before giving your information, especially when you are shopping from the site for the first time.
  • Be extra careful when you are shopping through cell phones, because cell phones don't have effective antivirus softwares in them, which can warn you of viruses.
  • Don't use public WiFi to shop.When you enter your information while using  a public WiFi connection, you leave yourself vulnerable, any hacker can easily hack your information.
  • Stay away from the sites which look suspicious (sites with poor layout and lots of pop ups).
  • Never click the embedded hyperlinks in the emails, they are probably viruses.
  • Shop on secure websites, look for sites with 'https' in them and not just http.
  • Try to use credit cards while shopping online and not cash or debit card, as it is a safe payment option.
  • Use devices with antivirus installed while shopping online, to be on a safe side.
  • If you receive messages with links to click, on your social media accounts, please do not click the links, it is probably a hacker.
  • Always remember your rights, if the online shop doesn't send your items on time, you can cancel the order anytime you want.
  • Check your credit card statement frequently.
  • Use strong passwords, which are difficult to guess.
     These are all the tips, you should consider while shopping online. Always be extra careful when giving your information, stay safe people !  This is all for today, i hope this post helps you all, thankyou for visiting.
