Smart Swipe For Online Shoppers


Sooooooo, I don't know about you but I'm definitely an online shopper. From stocking up on makeup that isn't sold locally, to paying for workshops, booking vacations, flights, hotels and anything else that Amazon might have cheaper than if I were to buy it in a store.

I've already been a victim of identity theft and so have other people I know. It's not a good feeling. It leaves you feeling violated. Not to mention it also leaves you cleaning up a mess someone else was good enough to leave for you.

Well, as I was surfing the internet in search of the next great thing to bring to my readers, I came across this handy dandy little doodad!! I believe it will definitely be a MUST HAVE in my household and should be in EVERY household that shops online. And with Christmas just a few months away, can you really afford NOT to protect your financial self? I'm thinking NO!

It's called the Smart Swipe. It is the worlds first truly secure personal credit card reader that keeps PC safe while shopping online.




Here is some information from their press release:

Regina, SK – July 14, 2009 – NetSecure Technologies is proud to offer US consumers the immediate availability of SmartSwipe, a personal credit card reader that keeps your credit card information and identity completely safe when you're shopping online.

Plug the SmartSwipe into your computer’s USB port, visit your favorite online stores, and swipe your credit card exactly like you would at a shop. SmartSwipe then scrambles and encrypts the user’s credit card data before it reaches the user’s computer or internet providing instant protection from malicious software attacks.


Traditional online securi
ty only protects your sensitive information once it has reached the internet, but not while it's sitting on your computer. Credit card companies, online retailers and security professionals spend millions every year to make the internet a safer place for credit card transactions. Despite these constant advances, credit card data is stolen every day due to the vulnerability of personal computers.

Hackers and thieves make a living taking your credit card data and personal information right from the desktop.
“Until now, there hasn’t been an affordable and effective solution for consumers to securely protect their credit card data while shopping online” said Daniel McCann, President of NetSecure Technologies. “Hackers have extremely sophisticated methods of circumventing traditional internet security to steal your personal information right from your computer. SmartSwipe facilitates transactions that leave no trace of credit card data, guaranteeing your information remains secure.”

SmartSwipe features simple plug and play installation and also eliminates the need to manually enter credit card information saving time while you shop online. The SmartSwipe works with nearly every major credit card and credit/debit card combination including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. System requirements include Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Internet Explorer 6 or higher. It also features a 90 day no-hassle return policy should you not be 100% satisfied.


The SmartSwipe is available now from SmartSwipe.ca with a MSRP of $99.95. For more inform

Can you imagine a world where you don't have to worry every time you purchase something online?? That little padlock on the bottom of the screen doesn't always keep hackers from gaining access to your information. Before you know it, your credit score is in the pooper and you can't figure out why. You can't imagine someone got a hold of your information from when you bought that vase for your aunt off of the internet. However, this happens more often thanyou think.





So when you're signing up for these fantastical classes and workshops, adding to your growing brush collection, re-stocking your makeup or hair kit for your next big gig, or making your travel plans you can do so at ease, knowing your information is protected. It's just one less thing to have to worry about. I dunno about you, but I could use some peace of mind here and there:)
