Cyber criminals are creating smarter fake emails and websites, so it's important to be extra vigilant. Paypal has 4 online security tips to keep your contact with the PayPal website safer.
- Always check that emails from PayPal address you by your first and last names, not "dear member" or something else.
- To visit our site, type paypal.com.au in your browser instead of clicking on email links.
- If your anti-virus software and web browser are up to date it will warn you if you're on a suspicious website.
- Install a free email security tool called Iconix. Before you open any email, it confirms if it's really come from the sender or not.
