Choosing a bank card when paying for purchases on the Internet and when traveling abroad is not a safe option, it is better to use cash or a virtual card. About this agency «Prime» said the operating director of the fintech platform «Fast River» Ksenia Artemyeva.

She noted that it is not necessary to enter card data on sites that do not have the HTTP protocol, and on platforms of recently registered online stores, for which you need to study the registration data of the company and domain. It is also not recommended to pay for online purchases through a public Wi-Fi network.

“In order to protect yourself as much as possible, for any purchases on the Internet it is better to get a virtual card and put only the amount that you are going to spend on it” , — advised Artemyeva.

As for traveling abroad, in this case there are difficulties with Russian bank cards, because, due to today's events, they may not be accepted in some countries. If there is no card issued in another state, it is better to stock up on cash, the expert concluded.
