If you’re one of the 30 million+ people expected to make a donation on GivingTuesday, which is coincidentally Computer Security Day, you’ll be able to safely and securely make your donation(s) with confidence with Armstrong’s Zoom internet security.

This year, donations made during the 10th annual GivingTuesday celebration are expected to top 2020’s $2.47 billion dollars. With that kind of money exchanging hands, cyber thieves will likely be trying to get a piece of the pie by creating fake donation websites using legitimate charity information. Zoom proactively protects you against dangerous websites and cyber threats. Advanced security features with real-time protection helps to keep your devices protected against ransomware, malware, viruses, and more. Trend Micro, which is FREE with your Zoom service, also assists in protecting your PC or MAC from viruses, malicious social media links, spyware and more.

Verify a Charity’s Legitimate Website

When making a donation online, you share some of your most sensitive information (bank or credit card information, address, etc.) and then trust that the website and subsequent charity or organization will not misuse your personally identifiable information or fall victim to a data breach. It’s a best practice to verify that you’re on a secure and encrypted website, by double checking the site’s URL for accuracy and also identifying the lock symbol to the left of the URL. You may also choose to research charities before committing to donate to make sure the mission and donation-use matches your intentions. Websites like CharityNavigator.org and Give.org can help you identify legitimate and helpful organizations.

Block Content and Improve your Browsing Experience

Zoom with Enhanced Wi-Fi takes your network security seriously. Monitor and manage your network connections using the associated Plume HomePass® app. The app offers automatic online protection, continuously monitoring your network for suspicious activity and blocks ad content coming from known ad servers, creating a better browsing experience for you!

Happy Donating!
