Christmas festivities are right around the corner, and while going to markets and malls can bring an extra dose of holiday spirit, many of us will rely on online shopping to alleviate some of the season’s stress. However, gift shopping online can be a mood-killer if you’re not cautious.
A new Nordic security survey from Telenor Group finds that more than 95 per cent of Norwegian, Swedes, and more than 92 per cent of Danes and Fins shop online, but that there are more people who feel less safe about online shopping than more safe compared to last year.
“Increasing attention towards online fraud and cybercrime could be a reason why people are becoming more concerned. We also see from our survey that many have been a target of online fraud, and that some have experienced financial losses because of this,” says Thorbjørn Busch, senior fraud advisor at Telenor Norway.
