If you plan on shopping online this Christmas season, there are some steps you can take to keep yourself safe. According to Better Business Bureau officials, since kids and teens usually have good credit, hackers are always on the lookout for information. This can allow hackers to obtain credit cards and more. The Bureau is recommending family members have a discussion about the importance of not giving out personal information in soliciting e-mails or on social media. Scammers will be out in full force with promotional e-mails during the holidays. It’s best not to click on links from senders you don’t recognize. Websites should have an https at the beginning of the web address. This indicates the website is secure because it’s encrypted. Young people tend to shop based on what their peers or celebrities are wearing or using. Scammers will try to lure them to click on links such as free products, free concerts or free games. Bureau officials say if it’s too good to be true, don’t click on it.
