Is It Safe To Buy Things Online With Your Smartphone?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Like title says, is it safe? I've never purchased anything online with my phone. Sometimes you could run into some good Newegg deals.

I ordered my graphics card, my cpu (through paypal from a member of OCN ), my motherboard, my ram, my hdd's, my sleeving, and many other stuff from my phone. It is 100% safe.
Wahoo!

No. Not at all. In fact, don't even browse the internet on your phone. They can steal all of your information just by loading up the window.

It just as safe as using your home computer. Unless you constantly have a weird van parked outside wherever your at. That might be a bit odd...

Yeah...when I first got my Nexus One and was reading the permissions and such from various applications I was installing. These applications take A LOT of information that I type in, what I view, and probably sensitive information like passwords and CC numbers.

Just don't connect to a public hotspot, and use your cellular data connection instead.
