Apple Cyber Monday Deals

November 28, 2011 by staff 

Apple Cyber Monday Deals, ‘Tis the season to be jolly — but not if a cyber Grinch scams you. As consumers across the country continue on Cyber Monday the online shopping fest begun on Black Friday, clicking the best deals shouldn’t be the only priority: It’s just as important for shoppers to keep a watchful eye out for cyber-scammers and hackers.

Whether you’re behind a computer or using your mobile phone, there are a few things every holiday customer should avoid.

It’s always best to use a major retail company’s official webpage (such as BestBuy.com or Target.com) instead of using other online vendors you may not be familiar with or don’t know the reputation of. Make sure you type in the retailer’s web address directly into the browser and start it with https:// to ensure that the site is secured.

If you click on a pop-up site to purchase an enticing gift, you could be handing out your personal information to an awaiting cyberthief. John Gable, head of consumer products for Internet security company Check Point Software Technologies, said most security software programs will alert you before going to a known dangerous site.

“Some give you an alert next to the link, others pop-up an alert before you get to the dangerous page,” Gable told FoxNews.com.

“Consumers should make sure this feature is available and turned on before shopping online this holiday season,” he advised.
