Bank websites and phone applications make it easy to keep track of your spending and savings. There are pros to online banking like easy payments and tracking, but there are cons as well. It seems easier to steal someone’s credit card information online, due to a site’s poor security or your own account getting taken. Our bank information is at our fingertips, but can also be at the hands of others. Security is important, so changing passwords and setting up authentication can help prevent theft.
It’s easy to use your credit card online, and hard at times not to purchase a new found item. Using the internet for shopping and banking has helped with handling money. It can teach the boundaries of your own spending, and where you have to show restraint.
