10 Tips for Safe Shopping Online on Cyber Monday

Published 29th November 2021

A free online safety guide on Cyber Monday.

Cyber Monday is often thought of as a tacked-on afterthought to Black Friday. Last year, however, online shoppers in the US spent a combined $10.8 billion – making Cyber Monday 2020 the most lucrative e-commerce event in human history. Even in the UK, where year-on-year sales actually fell, an estimated £2.5 billion changed hands in cyberspace. Clearly, figures of that magnitude are always likely to attract unscrupulous individuals looking to make a dishonest profit from excited online shoppers.

In the guide, you'll find tips such as making sure the site is secure, how to spot phishing attacks and checking the small print.
