According to Norton Security, the product line of the American technology Company Symantec Corporation, Shopping online can provide a wealth of choices—and a bevy of headaches if you aren’t careful. Remember the old rule: If it sounds too good to be true, it likely is. Stay safe by following these tips when shopping online:
- Check your bank or credit card statements regularly.
- Shop only on sites trusted by Norton Safe Web, part of your Norton Security.
- Look for “https” in a site’s URL (the extra “s” stands for “secure”).
- Enroll in credit monitoring for an extra layer of ID protection.
Protecting your identity requires remaining vigilant while shopping online. If the worst should happen and you fall victim, file an identity theft report with the Federal Trade Commission and fight back.
