Want to score some hot deals this Black Friday? Sure you do, but what steps are you taking to make sure you don’t also score the attention of hackers and other cyber-thieves? Implement these five tips to ensure smooth and safe online shopping:
- Use a personal VPN. Having your transactions encrypted with a personal VPN like PRIVATE WiFi is the most recommended way to surf online in wireless hotspots. So if you plan to score deals while in a public wifi environment — say, while waiting for your flight at the airport or just hanging out at your favorite coffee shop — use a personal VPN to prevent hackers from sniffing your sensitive financial data.
