Just how safe is your online account
This week is Gamer Safety Week, and we hope you got your Gamer Safety Week shopping done early because the malls are packed!

The Merchant Risk Council's (MRC) Gamer Safety Alliance (GSA) wants to help you be the safest online netizen that you can be by raising awareness for this second annual event. After a few bad years of an account hacking epidemic in online games, this year's Gamer Safety Week theme is "account safety and security in the online world." Tips include adding security proofs to your accounts, keeping hardware and software updated, utilizing phishing filters, creating strong passwords, and more.

You can read more about keeping your online accounts safe at the MRC's website.
