How do I keep my information as secure as possible?
To ensure that you do not become one of the Springboks in the Serengeti of the Internet. Please ensure that you do the following things:
- Whenever you have a device that is connected to the Internet always ensure that that it is running a current and updated version of Antivirus and Firewall agents.
- Never attempt to access the Internet if your machine does not have an active up to date Antivirus Agent running and a Firewall Program. This is plain gambling with your data and personal information and would only be a matter of time before you attract the unwanted attentions of a Fraudster to feast on your data and information.There are many very good free and paid Antivirus and Firewall products out there each with their unique flavors and levels of protections i.e. AVG, Avast Internet Security.
- Always ensure that your Internet Browser has the latest security and Java updates applied.
- Always refrain from using a strange or unfamiliar computer or mobile device that you do not own or regularly use to login to any of your secure services such as; Email, Social Media, Banking or shopping websites. If however you have to do so please ensue that you are completely logged out from the session afterwards. Ideally by closing the browser and performing a Shutdown or Restart of the computer to prevent anybody else after you obtaining your browsing information.
- Develop a regular security routine and try not to deviate from it.
I would also recommend if possible not to save your website passwords in your browser. If a hacker gains access to your computer he can effectively gain access to your browser sites saved passwords as well.
However, if like most of us you have a terrible memory and you need to do this, then there is a way on most browsers to assign a master password in the security settings to prevent anyone accessing your saved sites passwords automatically. I would suggest you google browser security master password as each browser has different steps on how to do this.
What can you do to increase my personal security?
As Internet shopping has become very popular and the overwhelming majority of transactions are quick, easy and trouble-free. We endeavor to do everything we can to ensure your shopping experience is as safe and secure as possible.
Fortunately there are a number of additional precautions you can take to increase your security:
- We recommend you always close down your Internet browser when you have finished shopping online, especially if you use a shared PC. This will delete temporary Internet cookies from any sites you may have visited.
- Never reveal your password to others.
- Keep your password as unique as possible and try not to choose obvious passwords, such as your name, partner's name, or other personal information which could be easily obtained by a third party.
