One of the joys of the holidays is seeing a loved one's reaction when they unwrap the perfect gift!
But technology makes keeping a surprise more challenging.
If you share a family computer, privacy isn't a sure thing.
And when it comes to gift giving — prying eyes may get the best of some kids. Who are we kidding? Curiosity can get the best of many adults too!
Time.com suggests some of the top ways you can protect your online holiday purchases so they are not uncovered before the holidays.
- Delete your browsing and search history.
- Lock your computer and phone with a password so no one can accidentally see an email or text alert about shipping notifications.
- Keep track of the "digital bread crumbs" you could be leaving behind so no everyone gets that exciting Christmas morning surprise.
