    Use up to date anti-virus software on your computer – this will help protect it against malware.

    Think before you click – planning ahead can help and make sure you double check website addresses for anything unusual.

    Be careful with links in emails and texts – remember that fake links or ads could lead you to a fraudulent website or contain malicious software.

    Use trusted websites  – check that the ‘https’ and the lock symbol is displayed, this needs to be in your browser address window when entering your card details or any personal information.

    On a mobile device use trusted apps – it can be difficult to see the full web address on mobile if you are using a web browser so instead stick with trusted apps.

    Keep your passwords long and unique – make sure to mix your passwords up with special characters, capital letters and numbers and use a different password for each site.

    Check your bank statements – if you don’t recognise a transaction, contact your bank or card issuer.
