Smart Shopping Tips to Protect Yourself Against Fraud

Back-to-school shopping or preparing for the holiday season? Don't sacrifice security for convenience.

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Brittney Castro explains how you can prevent fraud and tighten your security when shopping online and in a store. 

Convenience is everything in this fast-paced world, which is why so many consumers turn to online shopping rather than make their way to a brick-and-mortar location. Castro recommends always shopping at well-respected and trusted online retailers whose website URLs begin with HTTP or HTTPS and to avoid making online purchases through public Wi-Fi. Having strong passwords is also an obvious precaution -- but you'd be surprised how many people don't! 

When you're shopping in a store, again, stick to those trusted retailers. And if you're paying with a card, insert your card's chip rather than swiping it.
