February has always been looked upon as the month of love and romance where friends become lovers and lovers become soul mates.

As February 14th approaches, whether you’re a devotee or a hater of this day, people are busy seeking and buying gifts from flowers, chocolates to an endless array of everything red and heart shaped items. It’s easy to get caught up in moment… Well, guess what… Cyber criminals are also taking their part in the hysteria.


As February 14th draws closer, don’t be surprised if several spams and phishing scams find their way into your inbox.

There is no doubt that Valentine’s Day often offers spammers and scammers alike a golden opportunity to lure people into opening their wallets or giving away their personal information under the deceptive guise of love.

That is why Valentine’s Day security should be on everyone’s mind when buying gifts online or opening an e-card from that special someone.

Buying gifts online


We’ve all been there - that joy you feel when you’re unpacking your new computer and the eagerness that ensues once you’re about to power it on for the first time.
