organization, is cautioning consumers to use an ounce of prevention while shopping this
holiday season by avoiding transactions via public Wi-Fi systems such as those found in
airports, hotels or local coffee shops due to increased Internet security risks. With
more than 35 million active users, Comodo has earned the trust of consumers around the
world, and advises them that by using products such as TrustConnect on their laptop,
consumers can be safe when making purchases online because they are protected.
CyberMonday results for previous years indicate that more and more Americans are shopping
online for holiday gifts, according to recent reports.
"During this season of holiday buying, you don't want to unknowingly give away your
credit card information by not having your laptops protected with an extra level of trust
as an added precaution" said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security officer.
"Without Comodo TrustConnect on your laptop, hackers can have a field day with laptop
users on Public Wi-Fi systems who become easy prey to these bad guys trolling for
unprotected credit card information," he said. "You would never intentionally provide a
criminal with your personal and private information. They would probably take your
information and use it to take whatever they could from you."
