How To Stay Cybersafe This Festive Season

Next story

The Festive Season is a time full of family, feasting, and online gift shopping. While we all take a break over this period, cybercrime unfortunately doesn’t, so it’s vital to keep your wits about you when online this festive season. 

At ESET we’re all about year-round cybersecurity and raising awareness through every season is part of what we do, so we thought we’d share some of our top tips and tools we provide to help consumers stay safe online through December.

Our Internet Security ensures safe online shopping with advanced protection against a range of cyber threats. Whether you’re concerned about your privacy, online shopping, working online, or keeping your communications confidential, this deal has you covered, and it’s a great way to keep you safe this festive season and beyond.

Pay Online Safely 

Online shopping is the height of easy, simple shopping, and it’s a great way to get your holiday gift shopping done stress-free, but the downside is in order to pay you need to fill in your banking details like your online banking password and username, your card number, and your remote banking pin. 

Protecting your banking information is central to shopping online safely. While most online retailers do their best to make sure your transaction is safe on their end, there is little they can do if criminals have access to your device. Installing our Payment Protection Hero solves that problem. With the Payment Protection Hero on your devices, you can enjoy safe and secure online shopping 24/7, and know exactly when a threat is detected on your device and when it has been neutralised.
