If you’re someone who does a lot of online shopping, you might have your credit card details saved with certain online accounts. Companies give you this option because they want to increase the likelihood of you making a purchase.

To avoid your payment information getting tracked and copied by hackers, take the time to enter it every time, and never agree to save the information when prompted by the website.
