Securing Your Information and Money While Gambling Online

 

Online gambling is a buzzing option that keeps growing in popularity and value yearly. However, while it has made gambling easy, it also put you at risk of cybercriminals. The internet is not the safest of places and you need to take precautions to avoid criminals from stealing valuable information and money from you.

Online casinos that accept PayPal in Canada are generally secure as PayPal has a tough security system that keeps hackers out and prevents the stealing of your information. It is one of the most secure deposit methods in Canada for processing online gambling payments.

Is My Money and Information Safe on Online Gambling Sites?

Many people fear that their money is not safe with online gambling sites. Their fears are tangible but not reality. Top online gambling sites realize that they have their reputation at stake and invest lots of money to ensure their site is protected and safe for users.

With how competitive and large the market is, these sites know that they have a lot at stake not to take their site security seriously. A single mistake leading to cybercriminals stealing information and money from players on the site is a disaster so powerful no amount of PR can repair.

Tips for Securing Your Information and Money on Online Gambling Sites

It is not just enough for you to let the gambling sites do all the security work, there are aspects they cannot help you address such as negligence by forgetting to log out on your account on a public computer or allowing others to view your login details.

1. Find Out Who Regulates the Site.

The first place to look for possible security flaws when choosing an online casino is to find out if it is licensed or not. If it is not licensed, there is a high chance that the site may be built to steal your details and money. However, if it is licensed, find out which body regulates its activities.

Ideally, online gambling sites get regulated in places where their activities are legal such as Malta, the Isle of Man, and the Mohawk Territory in Kahnawake, Canada.

Normally, the name of the regulatory body is displayed on their About Page or at the bottom of the site. Any site that fails to spell this out is either operating illegally or a security threat. Either way, you want to avoid unlicensed sites with no regulatory body.

2. Use Only Sites That Have Secure Socket Layer Encryption

Top online gambling sites use a security system called Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect your information and money from online criminals. The SSL certificate is commonly deployed not only by online gambling sites but other websites and platforms to secure users’ information.

The role of the SSL is to create an encrypted link that connects a website and browser. Bans and other financial institutions make use of this same security technology to keep your information protected and money safe. If you can trust your bank with your money, you can also trust online gambling sites that use SSL encryption with your information and money.

How do you know if an online gambling website uses SSL encryption? This is simple. Go to the address bar where you type in the URL once you open the sire, If the address bar shows https://, it has SSL encryption but if it says http://, there is no SSL encryption.

It is advisable not to use sites that do not have SSL encryption as they are more vulnerable to hackers.

3. Check for Seals of Approval

Seals of Approvals are symbols that show that the site has gone through and passed different standard tests and inspections. You can find these seals at the bottom of the site homepage. Some examples of the seals you may see include Verisign and eCOGRA. Also, the regulatory body supervising the online gambling site logo will be on display there.

If these seals of approval are missing, it is a strong warning sign to avoid it.

4. Google The Online Gambling Site

This is probably the quickest way to ascertain if an online gambling site is safe or not. What you want to look out for is news about the site (whether it has been in the news for good or bad). Also, you can look up reviews from authoritative sites like CasinoBernie to find out how others perceive it.

It is a bad idea to just use any review you find on Google to make your judgments. These online gambling sites pay writers to write favorable reviews.

Conclusion

If the online gambling site can tick all four of the above checklists, you have a safe site. Security is one off-gaming aspect that all players should take seriously.
