A recent report indicated that of all online activities that people fear the most the worst of all was identity theft. When dealing with the internet there is a certain amount of anxiousness especially among the older demographic when it comes to paying bills and playing for money online. There is the suspicion that someone or for that matter something like a robot is watching our every move.
When it comes to internet wagering a study by VeriSign revealed that 85% of consumers consider trusting a site to be the most important factor in interacting with an internet location and sharing personal or confidential information. Just as in real life you usually don’t just open your door to strangers. The internet is no different when it comes to protecting your privacy. In order to protect themselves from problems 62% of consumers look for the lock icon in the address bar and 55 % for a logo or seal from the site providing them with a form of internet security.
Experts have stated, “The best security for consumers is education and using the latest tools and technologies that are out there to help counter fraud. As we move more and more of our lives online for example, banking, shopping, paying bills, communicating, registering, renewing, possible fraud threats follow closely behind. The key is to keep one step ahead by knowing how to protect yourself online, embracing best practices and using the latest technologies." Before signing up to that virtual poker room or bingo hall make sure the site has some credentials. There are so many resources available to provide the latest security and best places to sign up and feel safe in knowing your personal information won’t be sold or used by anyone other than the casino where you have placed your trust.
