If you shop online, make sure your purchases are secure

We're definitely living in a digital world now. Think of everything that you do online these days that you used to do in person.

Online shopping is probably at the top of that list. It's so much easier to find the best prices, compare products and brands, and purchase whatever you need right from the comfort of your own home.

Unfortunately, making purchases digitally does come with some security concerns. With cybercriminals lurking around every corner of the web, it's difficult keeping sensitive data from getting into their hands. This download can help make your transactions secure.

I'm talking about the app, Pay With Privacy.com.

This app lets you create a new virtual card for every transaction. Generate random Privacy Visa® cards to protect yourself when you spend online.

If you've ever had your credit card information stolen and had to get a new card issued you'll really appreciate how this app functions. Privacy solves the hassles and frustrations by providing you with virtual Visa cards that are automatically locked to the first merchant they're used at. Criminals are foiled, your banking information is safe, and you are in complete control when shopping online.

Privacy Visa cards may be used everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted. Here are some of the app's benefits:

  • Complete control - Set max charge limits on each card and close any card with just a swipe.
  • Private payments - Spend anonymously as purchases won't show up on your bank statements. Use a fake name when you pay and even a bogus billing address. It's nobody's business what you buy.
  • Stop thieves - Cards are automatically locked to the first merchant they're used at. So you're safe even if the merchant gets breached.
  • Easily end subscriptions - Set a max charge or make your card single use, so you'll never forget to cancel one of those 30-day free trial subscriptions.

Privacy.com is similar to a virtual private network (VPN). It works with both credit and debit cards and the merchants receive payment from Privacy.

Signing up only takes a couple minutes and it's completely free. Privacy.com makes money from merchants, just like a credit card, so it won't sell your information or surprise you with hidden fees.

The Privacy app is available for free on both iOS and Android. To get the app simply click on the appropriate link that we've provided inside the blue boxes below. If you're reading this article using the Komando.com app, you might not see the blue boxes. If not, click here to see them.
