    compromised credit card!!

    So my sister got a Droid 1 last Saturday. Last night she decided to make her first online purchase with her Droid and her credit card(with a company she buys from weekly). She then received a call this morning from her banking asking about her recent purchases. There were multiple charges made that came to over a thousand dollars over night. Needless to say they froze the card, then cancelled it.. my question is "is the browser credit card safe?" Or did someone breach the websites security and intercept her card number. (Like I said she buys online from the company but always from a computer). Thank you for your responses in advance!!

    i would never purchase through mobile phone for this reason alone.

    a home computer is much safer, imo

    for one thing you can download software that has some card protection.

    also the browser itself, such as chrome provide some protection.

    however, i've also had my account "hacked" twice. which is why i opened a separate account strictly for online purchases, which i transfer money into when i do decide to make a purchase.

    Ok, that makes sense. So then you would safely say that the browser itself is where her card got compromised, rather than the actual site?

    most likely. what site did she buy from, if you don't mind me asking.

    another thing about a browser, is if it requires a card there is usually a little "lock icon" that shows it's protected

    The site was called bountiful baskets (they sell fresh fruits and vegetables.)

    And your referring to a "computer browser" correct?

    yes computer browser.

    a site like that should have secure browsing and be able to recognize sensitive information being passed. the order/payment.

    i could be wrong, but i blame it on the browser. mobile purchases through the browser itself aren't secure enough if you ask me.
