 Verify website security:

One should be very careful while using their cards online as many shopping portals do not offer secure online shopping. This means that the phishers can access to all the details which one has provided on the site, including personal and credit information. A secure site always starts with HTTPS:// instead of HTTP://. Along with this the secure site will always have a small lock in the lower right corner of the screen. So, one should limit themselves to online shop from secure online sites.

Avoid shopping publicly:

it is always better to shop online at home because when one is using public computers, one never knows who else might be using that computer. There is no control over what kind of spyware or malware might be affecting that computer. So, one should never shop online from public computers. So, it's always advised to shop at home, as it's more comfortable and safe.

Don't store your information elsewhere:

Many sites offer the facility to save the credit card information for convenience to the customers while shopping online and speed up the online shopping process. It might be faster, but the risk involved is much higher. If by chance there has been a data breach in the company from where one is shopping online, all the personal information can be revealed. It might take a little longer to fill in all the details while shopping but it's a safe way to opt for, while shopping online. Instead of saving the personal information on some server where one does have control over, one should fill in all the details all the time they go for online shopping.

So, it is highly advised to take the time to shop securely using credit and debit cards online, and use caution while selecting the sites that one has chosen to shop from.
