These are some really simple ways to shop safely online you can use every day:

  • Research retailers online to make sure they’re legitimate. 
  • Make sure the website is secure. 
  • Know your rights and the company’s returns policy. 
  • Keep software and virus protection up-to-date and use strong passwords for online accounts. 
  • Don’t use public Wi-Fi. Your standard data connection is more secure. 
  • Pay using a credit card. You will have more protection. Alternatively, online services like PayPal mean scammers will not be able to get hold of your bank details. 
  • Be smart. If a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is.
