A lot of things today are happening on the internet, ranging from paying bills to playing music, and we cannot ignore the fact that the internet has a great impact on our daily lives.
Most of all online transactions today go well but there is still a lot of fraud, scams, and deception taking place online which we must try to avoid at any cost.
What can you do to protect yourself from fraud?
One of our most important pieces of advice on safe online browsing is to always make sure that you are well-informed. It is a good idea to spend time reading up on the various websites you visit and about which online shops are good to shop from. Always check for the contact information on the company. The website must include the company’s name, e-mail, telephone number, and physical mailing address. If it is a Danish company, it must also have a CVR number (identification number) of 8 digits.
Also check if the page is e-marked. At the e-mark organization they are actively working to combat e-commerce-related IT fraud. The e-mark is the whole of Denmark’s guarantee for safe and transparent e-commerce, and they certify the good web shops and fight to continually raise the bar of e-commerce. The e-mark is a non-profit organization founded in the year 2000, and they bring together stores and consumers to strengthen Danish e-commerce for the benefit of all of us.
In addition, you can check whether the company is fraudulent by visiting Trustpilot and reading the company’s scores and reviews from other users or previous customers. At Trustpilot it is the consumers who review the companies, and most online shops are reviewed here.

Therefore, our technicians cannot simply access your computer as they please, and they must follow very strict rules for what they can and cannot do on your computer. They will of course never access your pictures, folders, or other personal, private, or sensitive material during the process without your acceptance. With us, you are always in good hands throughout the process. It is strictly illegal for us to collect personal information or review your computer documents, and of course we will never do so. Our technicians are also subject to a certain kind of confidentiality or professional secrecy, and unless you have something very illegal on your computer, your data will not be used or discussed further.
If our technicians are helping you out with your problem without you on the line, the technician will always call you in the end to say goodbye. This way, you always know when we have exited your computer again.
