  • I will always check on line and if i can get a better deal on-line then i will go for it. Is there something that I am missing out on or is there something that I should know?

  • I am currently developing a software to protect you from phishing scams and online eavesdropping. I was wondering how many of you knew about all the dangers on the Internet.

  • There are just as many when you shop in a brick and mortar store. From a shady cashier to improperly discarded information. I had my identity stolen from a restaurant employee. When shopping online I only go to stores or sites that I really trust. All you need is good security software, strong passwords and firewalls. Oh and keep one credit or debit card that you only use for online purchases. Not trying to be rude.Yet, How do we know to trust you and your software?

  • i just make sure the site uses https:// and has the privacy lock before i purchase and constantly check my bank statements and only use the one card for online purchases.... i would never trust some cock and bull "ill protect you with my program" crap.

  • I've never had a problem and can't say I'm worried. More people get their identity stolen through the mail or from someone they know. And most Credit cards have the protections.
