Stay safe online this Christmas

Christmas is an amazing time of year but that doesn't mean that the internet is suddenly safer, there are still many things you have to look out for. 

Here are some tips on how to stay safe online this Christmas:

  • Don’t tell people you are going away online for holiday / Christmas breaks because then they know your house is unattended. Share it when you get back.
  • Make sure the websites you shop from are Https secure.
  • Try being nice online and give a Christmas compliment!
  • Don’t accept online friends requests from people that you don’t know, just because it's Christmas it doesn't mean everyone is nice.
