Security Tip of the Week: Online Shopping

Internet shopping can be convenient and economical, but be wary of who you are dealing with and exactly what you are buying. Make sure you know what your total cost will be and what the company's return policies are. Never send personal information like a Social Security number and always use a secure Web site. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? If so, send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu. Read more...
