Safety Online - Tips to keep your Online shopping secure
We have a variety of strong measures in place to protect your security and privacy on our site, but we dont sell everything, so here you will some additional tips to protect yourself when doing Online shopping.
You can change your password at any time by logging into your account your desktop or laptop computer, clicking 'Personal Details' and selecting 'Change your password'.
Use the password strength indicator to ensure any password you use rates as 'Strong' or 'Very Strong', and preferably something you have not used on any other site. The longer and more complicated your password, the stronger it is. Do not use simple passwords like '123456', 'password' or 'qwerty', or even birth dates
If you have trouble remembering your password, we suggest to checkout a number of other third party password manager tools available online.
Change your password regularly - (password management software can make this easy).
Separate email accounts
We suggest using at a minimum a separate email account for your online shopping needs to your other personal or financial activities. There are a number of free email services available, such as Gmail, Yahoo, Microsoft and others that allow you to set up accounts easily, at no additional costs.
Use a secure browser or shop using a mobile App
Some browsers are better than others. We recommend Chrome for Windows users and Safari or Chrome for Mac users. If you use a mobile device to shop, use an App instead of accessing the site through the browser.
Regularly check that your software is up to date with the latest virus protection updates/patches, and make sure you have virus protection installed and activated.
What should I do if I suspect my account is compromised?
First thing to do is change your password. You can do this by clicking 'I forgot my password' on the login drop down box on the desktop site. Remember to ensure you make any new password strong using the strength indicator.
'phishing' (What is !)
'Phishing' is when a malicious third party attempts to get you to reveal personal information by asking for that information in unsolicited communications, which are often made to appear to be from a legitimate source.
Klub Supplies will never (Neither will the ATO, or Microsoft...), send you an unsolicited email asking for:
Usernames and passwords;
Bank account numbers;
Full credit card numbers;
First names or surnames of family members;
Klub Supplies (klubs) emails you receive will all end in '@klubs.com.au'. If you believe an email you've received claiming to be from Klub Supplies (Klubs) may be a phishing scam, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
