Amazon Prime Days are July 15 and 16. There are lots of bargains out there to check out and you might want to do some comparison shopping. The biggest question is how will you be shopping? Will be using mobile for part of your shopping? Will you be checking your phone throughout the day to find more great deals?
Mobile phones are great BUT there are security issues on these specific days that you need to be aware of.
Like on Black Fridays, and other big sale days, hackers and scammers are always alert to those days and are doing anything they can to reach your phone, work computer, home computer or tablet to snag your credit card numbers and passwords.
One way to improve your personal security while on mobile or at work is to access the web via a VPN.
What is a VPN?
To help you stay secure and safe during the next 2-3 days, ExpressVPN.com has provided a guest post on how to shop Prime Days and do it so your personal data and details are secure.
“Secure” Amazon Prime Day Shopping Anywhere!
Prime Day deals come and go fast at all different times of the day and night (and at nearly all retailers). Whether out and about or vacationing, some deals we really want might not be available while shopping safely through our home or work wifi networks.
How can Prime Day shoppers keep their financials safe online?
34% of Americans shop online through public wifi (via recent survey from ExpressVPN.com), however, of the 30% of Americans that use a VPN, more than half (53%) shop safely through public wifi (only 26% of nonVPN users shop through public wifi).
“A VPN instantly secures your connection, making it possible for you to send sensitive information online without having to worry about your personal data being recorded or spied on,” Harold Li, vice president of ExpressVPN.
Along with using a VPN to protect your financial data when shopping online, the survey reports there are other things you can do to protect your information, such as:
62% of Americans use multi-factor authentication for logging into their banking apps
57% of Americans use PayPal, or other payment methods, to avoid giving financial information to retailers
43% of Americans check their bank accounts daily to see if they has been compromised
More TIPS to help secure online shopping:
- Visit HTTPS-only sites
- Only shop through trusted retailers
- Vary online passwords
- Use a credit card that provides fraud protection
