Protecting Yourself Online: The Definitive Resource on Safety and Privacy in CyberspaceOnline Shopping has become very popular over the years as more and more people are using the internet.

Also, the comfort level and trust has increased. However, with the increase of traffic in terms of online shopping, internet fraud is on the rise as well.

Some of the most common forms of internet fraud are online auctions, phishing, credit card fraud and identity theft.

There are simple steps that can be taken to avoid being a victim of internet fraud and identity theft. I recently put together a SQUIDOO web page which gives you effective tips to prevent internet fraud: Some of the topics I cover are:

  • Securing your computers and browsers;
  • Effective use of passwords;
  • Shopping at reputable online stores;
  • Understanding privacy policies;
  • Sharing personal information;
  • Keeping track of transaction records.

I discuss all the above in more detail and provide valuable information to help you safely shop online in my Squidoo web page. Be safe when shopping for Christmas and Holiday Gifts online.
