At this time of year, we cannot stress enough to be cautious in holiday shopping, whether online or in person. If shopping online, make sure the website is secure with an https:// or a lock icon by the URL field.
Don’t click on links wanting you to track your holiday packages. Go to the shipping site directly. Be aware of who is handling your credit card when it is not in your possession.
Lifelock has a good article on tips for online shopping. It can be found at https://www.lifelock.com/learn-internet-security-safe-holiday-online-shopping-tips.html
(Or search the internet and find the article instead of clicking on a link!)
