Watch my video about why Why I'm Cutting Up My Credit Card
It's true, one of the most secure ways in protecting our own lives would be to do like this with our cards.
We know how easy it is to become robed when we use these credit or bankcards for payment transactions.
How many has not been victims for this even in real life when we put our card in a machine by our own hands.
It happens everywhere e.g when pick up real money on the bank, visit a gasstation, paying for something we bought in a store somewhere. These manipulations has been well known in many years.
For the moment we got something new that they tell will give us better protection, a micro chip instead of this magnet-stripe back of the card. Ok, that might prevent some of the older tricks.
My own opinion is that this solution will only "move" this problem one step ahead of us.
Where did they move the solution? Ofcourse internet where should it be otherwise
And what tells the common sense about everything that occurs at internet?
Can it ever be a safe place for human kind? Unfortunately the answer will be No as long we keep up using money and the capitalistic idea as economical engine in our lives.
So why does everyone still keep on to this idea?
It has almost as strong importance for us as religions are for us, something we can not leave.
We used this in many thousand of years. So can we learn to leave it and walk on to something else?
I think Comodo have shown us one good example in what can be done in many different kind of business both online and in real life in change all this to something which both can help people and in the same time make our lives more easy and secure as well. BY using and showing the Good Will and provide people with free products.
I am very impressed of this fact as it shows us a new direction in where it's right to go next.
One more thing has a quite big heavy importance...
There is a lot of people that makes the mistake by Compare this risk in become robed online together with what kind of Security system they having installed on the computer.
How many of you believes that this has importance if you will be robed or not when paying with your creditcard online?
It can never protect for insider crimes from someone that working on the webpage you visit and there you using your creditcard nor for criminal abuse with intentions to scam their customers.
Also these servers can become hacked and abused from people that want to steal your data in purpose for reach your bankaccount to steal money. This happened myself one time and there was nothing I could done in prevent it from happen more than the only mistake I did by signing up for having a bankcard for make payments with connected to my own account.
Just want to explain this as there is situations were no single AV or antimalware product can save you from troubles in become robed because it doesn't have anything to do with your own computer.
