I am a huge fan of online shopping, it allows me to place orders for things I'd like to have without the worry of going to a store to find out it is out-of-stock or overpriced. It's been a lifesaver for my holiday shopping and just about anything from prescription glasses to a bag of pet food. With that being said it's really important to keep your online privacy and safety from identity theft in check! I was the victim of identity theft when I was 17, and I would not wish that nightmare on anyone. Through the years I've learned a few tips and tricks to keep my identity safe and shop online knowing that all of my information is secure. The best advice I could offer to anyone shopping online is: make sure that there is a secure connection between you and the website! This can be easily spotted by a small green padlock next to the URL of the website, or the HTTP beginning of the URL being green! This typically pops up for a user when they are entering sensitive personal information such as credit card numbers or social security numbers. Does anyone else have any online shopping safety tips?
