Online Holiday Shopping Do's and Don'ts

 


 

DON'T: Click links from unfamiliar websites. Even if the deal is too good to pass up, it could lead to a "phishing" scam.
DO: Enter the website's address into your browser, and check any related reviews or forum mentions of scams.

DON'T: Neglect your passwords. Fifty-three percent of smartphone users don't utilize the password or PIN function for locking phones.
DO: Take advantage of the password feature and keep your information secure in the event that your phone is stolen. Also, make sure you can wipe your data from a remote location.



DON'T: Download holiday apps from unfamiliar websites, and give your permission for the app to have unlimited access to information.
DO: Make sure your apps are downloaded from trustworthy sources such as the Android MarketApple App Store or the Amazon App Store. Ensure that requests for information make sense for the app's purpose. Always read user comments before installing.

DON'T: Buy all your holiday gifts online using unsecure, Wi-Fi connections. 
DO: Window shop to your heart's content on public connections, but wait to buy until you can get to a secure connection at home or the office.

Good morning!  Having a home with space is wonderful!  The kids and I are so happy and feeling much more comfortable and at ease.  We spent 2 days straight moving then began unpacking Saturday night.  After church yesterday we organized and unpacked some more and last night was cleaning.  We were able to begin our Monday morning routine with easy and comfort - I can't begin to express how truly grateful we are.  We are feeling blessed and know without a doubt that God's hand was with us from the beginning.  

Thank you so much for all you did.  You were an anchor for me and without your direction through this process I would have been lost. 

Sincerely, Julie, Clifton Park
