Stay secure online this festive season

Published

In the lead-up to festive season sales, be alert to cybercriminals seeking to steal your Christmas joy and your money.

Online shopping scams were one of the top reported cybercrimes reported in Australia last year.

Cybercriminals often target online shoppers to steal their money or their personal details.

They do this through a variety of methods including selling products that don't exist, asking for personal and payment information they don't need, and installing malicious software ("malware") on your device.

It's important to be alert and be secure when you are shopping online.
