Make Cyber Monday (and every cyber day) Safe

Since the advent of Cyber Monday in 2005, online shopping has exploded. According to John Sileo, a leading expert on identity theft, online shopping can be routine and safe as long as you follow a few simple rules. One rule he doesn’t explicitly mention in the above-mentioned article is using Mastercard SecureCode to protect online purchases. SecureCode is a program created by MasterCard that allows debit and credit card holders to register their cards in order to add another layer of protection to online shopping. Once a card is registered, purchases made at participating merchants automatically produce an online receipt and require cardholders to enter their personal “secure” code. If a code isn’t entered, the purchase can not be made.

Spending a few minutes registering your MasterCard debit or credit card can provide significant peace of mind. Visit First National Bank or MasterCard’s website for more information.

Add this step to other precautions mentioned by Sileo, and you’ll be able to shop online with confidence.
