This sweepstakes is now closed. Be sure to ‘like’ us on Facebook for more giveaways and Internet safety tips.
Holiday shopping is underway so we thought now was the perfect time to remind you that safe shopping leads to merry celebrations. Every year we release a list of the Most Dangerous Gifts for shoppers in the U.S. that always includes some safe shopping tips that are good for shoppers all over the world. They are:
- Visit retailers’ websites directly if possible (e.g., www.amazon.com vs. searching ‘Amazon’ on Google)
- Use Internet security software that features browsing protection (or check links with F-Secure’s free Browsing Protection)
- Always check a site’s URL before making any purchase (look to make sure you’re at the correct online store and that the page URL begins with https://, which means it’s secure)
You should also keep an eye on any credit card account you use for online shopping and your bank account on a regular basis to make sure all the transactions are correct.
To celebrate what we call the Safe Shopping Season we’re giving away a Nexus 10 tablet 16 GB with F-Secure Mobile Security.
