More And More Credit Card Transactions Happen Online

from the so-why-do-we-still-make-it-so-insecure? dept

Due to the growing interest in e-commerce, an increasing percentage of all credit card transactions now happen online. The article quotes someone pointing out that this is no surprise (it isn’t… at all), but also saying: “It’s convenient, secure and ideally suits the time-poor society we live in.” You might want to question that middle part, however. Unfortunately, using credit cards online isn’t always as secure as it should be, and with so many online transactions happening these days, it’s about time that credit card companies start making disposable credit card numbers the standard online.
