Tips for Safe Shopping Online
The padlock icon - You’ll see a lot of advice to only use a website that displays a padlock – which can be green– in the address bar, and that remains in force. However, there are two things to be aware of here: first, the padlock only tells you that the website is encrypted, and that it’s sending your details, such as your password and card details, from your device to its servers securely. It doesn’t tell you anything about the authenticity or trustworthiness of the people behind the website: hackers can create secure websites, too. Also, the notification is changing: Google’s Chrome browser is moving towards warning you if a website is not secure rather than telling you that it is secure, and other browsers will soon be doing the same. So look for either the green padlock, or for a warning that the site you’re visiting isn’t secure before you type in your details.
Sign out of the website­ - When you’ve finished shopping, sign out of the website and clear your cookies if you’re using a computer that anyone else has access to. This is especially important if you’re using a computer in the library or an internet café. If you leave yourself signed in, you risk someone else stealing your credit card details from your browser.
Check your statements
- Once you’ve completed your shopping, make sure you carefully check the statements for any cards you’ve used to do your shopping. If you’ve followed our other tips about making sure you’re only sending card details over secure links and being careful when you’re using public wi-fi, you should be pretty safe, but it’s not unheard of for card details to be compromised: BA customers were warned that their card details could have been stolen in the data breach announced back in September, for example. And it’s always worth making sure that you’ve been charged the right amount, too. It’s also worth storing emailed receipts for goods you’ve bought online in a separate folder on your computer so that you can quickly find them if you need to. You could either create a separate folder (in Outlook, Mail or Thunderbird) and move emails with receipts into that, or a new Label in Gmail.
More next week.
Beat Updates
Rutland North/South - The joint Rutland North and Rutland South priority remains as Rural Crime in relation to Burglaries, car crime and theft. We are noticed a reduction with Theft from vehicles where property has been taken but ask that local residents to continue not to leave any valuables in their vehicles or to move the valuable property to boot area prior to your arrival as perpetrators may be watching. We continue to work with Neighbouring Police Forces who are having similar issues. With darker nights we ask that residents be aware to leave some lights on and make your homes appear occupied. We continue to utilise the ANPR camera in Rutland to identify vehicles travelling through the County either with no driving documents or linked to crime. We will continue to work closely with the local residents and will alert you as soon as crime is reported and ask that if anything suspicious is seen to report through 101.
Anyone with information about a crime in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland can call Leicestershire Police by dialing 101 (calls cost 15p) or call Crimestoppers free and anonymously on 0800 555 111.
