Now that more people are working from home, many online purchases are being made with company cards. Here’s how to use your card securely online from your home office.
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.
