Be Merry and Bright–Shop Wisely Online During the Holidays

Protecting your privacy is essential when shopping online. These signals indicate that you have entered a secure Web page: * A screen notice that says you are visiting a secure site * A closed lock or unbroken key in the bottom corner of your screen * The first letters of the Internet address you are viewing change from “http” to “https”

Improve Security Shopping Online

The next time you use a credit card to pay for something online or by phone, the merchant may ask you for your three-digit code. You can find it on the back of the card, inside the signature box, after the last four digits of your account number. Merchants request the code (often referred to as a card verification code or CVC) to make sure a consumer has his or her card and is not a thief using a stolen credit card account number.
