How to buy safely online
Over the past months, you’ve probably seen more ads from local companies popping up on your Facebook feed allowing you to buy products online and have them delivered right at your doorstep.
Here are 3 tips to help you keep safe you safe while shopping online:
1. Lookout for “HTTPS” (trust us, it’s easy)
Don’t worry, this is nothing technical.
One of the easiest ways to make sure the website you’re browsing is secure is to check that the URL starts with HTTPS. The “S” guarantees that the URL is encrypted, which means that your sensitive information is made secure.
To better illustrate what we mean, while you are on a website, look in your browser’s address bar to check the URL for the HTTPS like for example https://www.quantuminsurance.com. Make it a habit to do the same check each time you are entering your details on a website.
Trustworthy websites take privacy very seriously.
3. Make sure you can pay safely
Make sure to look out for a safe payment method at your disposal. Lookout for payment facilities such as Internet Banking methods and/or payment gateway facilities supported by trustworthy and regulated banks.
