You must make sure that the website you are accessing is the official one, checking that the URL of the page begins with “https: //”, which indicates that it is a secure connection, and consult the opinion of other users regarding their experience of purchase.
- Avoid sharing devices. The computer security company Kaspersky advises not to make online purchases from public places, such as internet cafes or open Wi-Fi networks, since being insecure, they make it easy for hackers to intercept information. Therefore, purchases must be made from home, where the network is more secure and is protected by a password.
- Review terms and conditions. The Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) advises that when buying online you carefully and carefully read the terms and conditions to protect your information, since many pages collect user data to send advertising and offer products and services.
- Pay with a digital card. It is recommended to use the codes generated by bank apps to avoid using bank cards directly. Even if you have a credit card, in the banks app they give you a digital card with a random digital security code that is updated; If it is not used within five minutes, it is erased and cannot be used again.
