10 Tips for Safe Shopping Online on Black Friday

Published 26th November 2021

A free online safety guide on Black Friday.

One of the many notable side-effects of the pandemic has been the surge in online shopping, as people stay home for longer periods. Those sales figures are set to experience a particularly pronounced spike on Black Friday, as eager shoppers take to the internet in search of a bargain (or ten). Delight at securing those must-have items can quickly be overshadowed, however, by falling foul of the retail risks that can await unwary buyers.

In the guide, you'll find tips such as how to check that the sites secure, how to identify a phishing attack and how to check if you’re really getting a ‘deal’.
