Many companies make most of their purchases online. Here are some tips that can make it smoother and more secure the next time you buy online.
1) Use a secure connection
Work only on your work devices and use a secure internet connection, such as an encrypted WiFi or a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
2) Check that online stores use Mastercard Identity Check!
Mastercard Identity Check is a global security standard to which many online stores are associated. This means that you confirm your purchase online with BankID or with a one-time password via SMS.
3) Never give out information unnecessarily
Never enter your card number, codes or personal information other than when you pay.
4) Use a virtual card for regular purchases
Do you often make purchases online? With a virtual card you can avoid using your own card when online shopping. Another benefit is that all the company's purchases are collected on a single invoice, which can be sent directly to the company's accounting system.
5) If you get unlucky – block the card immediately!
As soon as you suspect any kind of card fraud or if you’ve lost your card, you should block it immediately. Don't forget to also make a police report.
