Ladies, it’s that time of year again! The time to get into your comfiest athleisure wear, pull up your laptop and online shop your way into the holiday season!
In our minds, there’s nothing that can go wrong, including surfing the internet unprotected. You’ve heard the horror stories from friends and family of hackers infiltrating their email accounts and even stealing their credit card information right under their noses.
Can you blame them? When there’s a hacker attack every 39 seconds, according to Security Magazine. For the average American, getting hacked is one of our biggest fears. It’s no surprise when, on average, 75 records are stolen every second, as stated in Cybersecurity Ventures.
That’s why we want to tell you about our favorite holiday hack that we’ll be using this holiday season, Dashlane! It’s a safe, convenient, free application guaranteed to make your online holiday shopping stress-free and, most importantly protected.
It’s time to live your best life online by using Dashlane to secure and protect your personal information in one place safely.
The first step is changing your passwords. Let’s face it, no one has a different login and password for every account or website subscription. We’re all guilty of using the same trivial password when subscribing to online stores to get an extra 20% off on any order.
Yet, can you honestly say those choices are protecting you or making you susceptible to scammers?
Dashlane’s password generator can take your online security measure to the next level. It can help create strong new passwords to replace your old ones as you browse the web.
The platform also offers to monitor the dark web continually and encrypt your information from unsecured Wi-Fi. Yes, that’s right! Now you can bargain hunt on the go on your mobile devices looking for steep discounts and promo codes for every online deal without a care in the world.
Feel more at ease, knowing all your sensitive information is guarded with patented protection in Dashlane. If for any reason, your data is compromised, you will be alerted within seconds.
When it comes to shopping online convenience is also high in our priority list. Every minute counts when it comes to securing your purchases. Especially during the holidays.
Honestly, ladies, how many times have you been ready to hit “purchase” on your online shopping cart, and your credit card is far away from you?
It’s definitely an “ugh” moment for any woman.
Dashlane has a neat auto-filling information feature for that specific reason. When you proceed to finalize your transaction online, you can look forward to having your name, address, and payment details filled quickly and accurately.
After all, the 24-hour time crunch during Cyber Monday leaves no room for mistakes, including sharing information.
Amid the holiday hustle and bustle, revealing your credentials to others becomes a norm. However, in the long run, it may have its repercussions.
Thinking back, have you ever found a load of saved credit cards in payment options or unknown orders shipped to random addresses? Say in your Amazon Prime account?
If the answer is yes, then your act of selflessness has been taken advantage of.
Dashlane’s secure sharing tools help you keep track of the accounts you’ve shared with your inner circle without ever divulging your passwords. The best part, you can manage and revoke access at any time.
With those who you trust the most, Dashlane has a built-in emergency contact to give a friend or family member access to your accounts when requested.
No judgment here if it’s during a shopping spree.
Among all these top-notch features want to know the best one? It’s FREE. Don’t wait for the holidays to arrive to experience this application and all that it provides.
The time is now!
Start your day right and head over to Dashlane/millennialwomen to get the platform free on your first device. Look forward to having secure access anywhere, anytime.
