Shopping online can be fun and convenient but are you doing all you can to keep yourself and your family safe on the internet?
Do you know how to keep your credit card secure whilst shopping online? Is your card registered for added security measures such as Verified by Visa, MasterCard Secure or American Express SafeKey?
Here are some steps for safe online shopping;
1. Website URL address security: Look for the https at the start of the URL and make sure the green bar and padlock are present in the browser bar.
2. Wifi security: Check you are connecting to the right network. Avoid making financial transactions on public wifi and use a password protected network.
North Town Community Forum
- Category: North Town
The agenda includes status reports from all of these agencies and immediate issues of concern to the local community. Attendees take away issues to those capable of taking action and report back to the meeting as appropriate. The meeting is not intended to be an executive.
Communication is the responsibility of Neighbourhood Watch, who chair the meetings and newsletters are issued after each such meeting. There is an associated push for further watches to be created in NorthTown, to increase the coverage and the associated information flow. All current coordinators are encouraged to inform their members of this initiative and to urge their neighbours to join their Watch.
The meetings are held quarterly.
