I tried to make a online purchase with my CITI card. It was declined. When I call to inquire as to why?

I was asked about recent purchases. There were 3 purchases made today and yesterday I didn't make. The card was canceled and I won't be charged.

Reason for this post. Is there a good app that will allow me to make online purchases and not allow my information to be hacked?

This is the first time this has happened to me.

Good luck!

Do you make online purchases? If so what is your ID Theft protection? Avast offers IP protection. Will that deter hackers?

I use Apple Pay when I can, that way my card information isn’t entered online again and again.

I have a PayPal account. I think I'll use that whenever possible.

I use a credit card, and I only purchase from reputable sellers: Amazon, Google Play, AT&T, and such.

Before the Covid crisis, I was still using cash to make purchases in person: Walmart, Food4Less, Rite-Aid, etc.

I've been using cash lately so I can rid myself of credit card payments. I've paid them down to almost nada.

I just bought a new mattress, dresser and nightstand. I went to Ortho and Sit & Sleep. Glad I did. I found if you pay cash it opens avenues to barter. I saved $300 on my dresser and nightstand got a $200.00 manager discount on my mattress.

That's only the 3rd time I've ventured out since the pandemic. Regardless of what the IIC says I'm staying put. LINK

Yeah, I saw the picture of that little girl, in another thread. It's funny as he!!, the way she's peering...to catch whatever bad things are trying to sneak up on her.

I've done 3 online transactions using PayPal. Query Does anyone know how secure PayPal is?

I haven't used PayPal in a long time, but when I did, I was very happy with it.

If you are ever a victim of fraud or abuse, they will take care of it for you.

Just let them know what your problem is.

Thanks. I do a lot of online buying. I'll keep using them.

I specifically used PayPal for the ATM's in the Dominican Republic, back in 2008 or so. It was recommended to me by a tourist Web site I used to frequent.

Anyway, PayPal was great: no complaints.

And the Dominican ladies...yeah, that's another great story or two (or 10-plus).
