I love shopping, but I hate crowds. Online shopping is the best thing that has ever happened to me. The problem is, I am afraid using my card online isn’t secure. It’s been hacked twice already this year. How can I indulge my online shopping habit and keep my payment information secure?

I hear you. Shopping malls can be terrifying places, especially this time of year. The Internet has been a godsend for people who love to shop but can’t deal with the throngs. For example, shopping at Athleta online is a great option if you are afraid of crowds, during the holiday season or any other time of year. But if your credit card has been hacked recently, it’s no wonder you feel skittish about entering your payment information online again. There are things you can do to ensure that your credit card stays secure. Most importantly, always use secure, password-protected Internet to access the web. This isn’t just when you’re shopping, banking, or doing other sensitive tasks online. It’s never a good idea to surf open, public Wi-Fi on a computer that contains your passwords and account numbers. So make sure you’re logged into a secure system, and surf away.
