Too Long; Didn't Read

Whether or not you’re a diligent shopper who likes to plan ahead, there’s no getting around the fact that the holidays are bearing down on us once again, and Santa isn’t the only one who has to make a list. If you’re like me, checking it twice comes with a side of climate- and community-mindedness, and we do our best to shop the digital storefronts of local and small businesses rather than line the pockets of a certain billionaire. (Hint: starts with B, rhymes with pesos.) Holiday shopping has been stressful since the first caveman had to find a nice pair of sabertooth earrings for his partner at the last minute, but it’s especially fraught thanks to today’s digital component. Holiday shopping online, as great as it is, can make you vulnerable to a host of cyber threats, identity theft, credit card scams, and other shady business involving the unwanted transfer of your sensitive data to malicious third parties.
