Use VPN/Proxy Apps:
VPN and proxies are software which allow you to browse anonymously. VPN stands for “Virtual Private Network” which provide you freedom to browse anything from world without leaving any footprint. None can track your transaction history if you are using VPN. So my recommendation is always use any good and trusted VPN while your online payment to secure your transactions.
Clean your browser:
My recommendation is always clean your browsing history, cookies, saved password, auto fills and other data before making any online payment. There is nothing much to explain but this will help you to secure your online transactions. So make sure that you have cleared all browser data.
For clearing browser data in Google Chrome just follow these steps…

Make Strong Password:
Password is most important thing that you should take care while making it. Always make a strong password that none can predict it. Use combination of Alphabets, Numbers and special character while creating your online transaction password. Never use continuous number like 12345 or 4321 and similarly with characters like abcde, pqrst etc. while making your password. Never use name, phone numbers, username as password.
Never write your password:
Never write your password at anyplace which can be easily access by anyone. If you are unable to remember this password make sure wherever you written it, is secured enough. Don’t place it in your vault or on desk and drawers etc.
Keep your PC up-to-date & use SSL enabled websites:
Keep your PC/Computer up-to-date with latest official update. Official update fix the bugs and release security update to secure it. Always update your PC with regular release.
