Online shopping security

Probably one of the most pressing issues facing internet users today, are scammers and hackers. It's a problem everyone faces and we want to help you stay safe when purchasing and paying for goods on the internet

There are a few basic things to look out for when visiting a site. I will briefly go over them here:

- If it doesn't look right...When you visit a website and it just doesn't look right or you think it might not be secure, you should follow your instincts and leave the site. Here are some goods tips to follow before buying from any website:

- Bank quality encryption: Look for the "s" in the "https" in the web address. This indicates that the site is encrypted and should be very safe.

Dandashop.co.za uses a secured and encrypted site so you can visit us, and make secure payments, with peace of mind! We use Shopify's SSL(secure sockets layer) 128bit encryption, which is the same banks use to secure all their online payments.

- Secure payment gateways: Look for secure payment options on the website you plan on buying from. All good e-commerce websites should have some form of secure payment gateway like Paypal, Payfast, etc. This allows you to buy goods from a site without your credit card details being stored on the site itself. Payment gateways like these store your information securely on their databases. 

- Public computers: Don't use public computers when you make purchases or payments. Computers store information in the "cache" and this could store all your browsing history, key strokes and even login credentials, which could be accessed by the public.

- Security software: Make sure you have a good, reliable internet security protection software installed. There are various types available for very reasonable prices. Rather spend a few hundred Rand on Anti-malware/-spyware/-virus than loose big sums of money from someone breaking into your bank account. Reputable names are McAfee, Bitdefender, Kaspersky, etc. Here is a list of the top 10 best Antivirus software for 2020.

- Public WiFi: Don't use public WiFi unless it's through a secure VPN service. Hackers can access your information very easily over public WiFi.

There is of course a lot more to look out for than the above mentioned points , but this should help you to get started. The best advice is this: trust your instincts! If it doesn't feel right, don't do it!!

Stay Safe!

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO DO TO LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

10 THINGS YOU NEED TO DO TO LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

We all want to live healthily, and we are always looking for ways to adapt a healthy lifestyle. Our quest for a healthy lifestyle is interrupted only by our unwillingness and laziness in the longer run. It seldom happens that whatever activity we start for our fitness, we carry it out on regular basis. The problem is the lack of consistency. Nothing can be achieved overnight. We don’t even consider the most basic things that are crucial for our health like proper diet, proper sleeping patterns, and exercise etc. If we make a routine and carry out these activities on daily basis then we can do other more complex tasks like yoga, which will improve our health even further.

Here is a list of 10 things that you need to consider if you want to live a healthy life

  1. Cardiovascular Exercise

Exercise is extremely important for your life because it saves you from many diseases. Cardiovascular exercise is like a heavenly potion which sweeps away all the diseases in your body. The most important thing about it is that it strengthens your heart as well as your cardiovascular system. As time passes by, cholesterol level in your veins increases causing increased blood pressure. This type of exercise reduces cholesterol and keeps you fit and healthy.

Many experts suggest that you should do low or high-intensity cardiovascular exercise on daily basis for 20 to 30 minutes.

  1. Weight Control

Weight control is another situation in which many people are trapped and even after doing plenty of exercises and other activities, do not find their weight to be reducing. The problem is in your food intake. A number of calories that you take must be higher than that your consumption, and even after exercising the weight remains the same. The proper way to maintain your weight is to make a proper diet plan as well as make a schedule for daily exercise. Only this way, you will get the maximum results.

  1. Avoid Processed Foods

We find this modern technological world so fast that we are unable to spare even an hour to cook our own food because we are too busy. On the other hand, fast food has become a trend: it has become a fashion. We go to the cafes, order junk food or pizza and it is served in 5 minutes: no need to wait and no need to trouble yourself by cooking. No one knows the disadvantages of this junk food. Many researchers point out that this food can be the cause of cancer as well. For a healthy lifestyle, you should cook food at home, and avoid processed foods as much as you can.

  1. Sleep Pattern

A proper sleep pattern is extremely important for your health as well as for increased attention. It is also very important if you are trying to lose some weight. According to different studies conducted by well-known scholars and scientists, when you don’t sleep properly, your body releases a hormone which is known as cortisol. This hormone disturbs the metabolism of your body resulting in increased fat storage. You should sleep at least 8 hours in a day.

  1. Reduce Stress

We are always haunted by the amount of work that we are supposed to do on daily basis and this increase our stress level to such an extent that we constantly feel frustrated. Stress is a modern phenomenon and can be associated directly with our usage of modern technological gadgets. We don’t even think of getting closer to nature these days. Our eyes are fixed on the mobile or computer screens all day. You can reduce the stress by first identifying that what factors are causing this and then consequently by eliminating all those factors.

  1. Control Cravings

In this modern world, everything that we want is available to us, and if we want to control ourselves, we need will-power more than ever. If we are dieting, and avoiding all the processed food in the market, and suddenly we catch a glimpse of a person eating pizza, and we finally decide to eat it for one last time. Many people report that they have the highest craving to eat something at night time. If you stop eating at night, you will be able to reduce a significant amount of weight.

  1. Involve the family

A single man cannot do many things on his own, besides he loses inspiration or loses track with the passage of time. Involving your family members with you and urging them to adopt a lifestyle that is healthier can also boost your inspiration as well as it will keep your entire family healthy. You can also make a group with your friends.

  1. Participate in Sports

Participating in sports is another effective way to be healthy. Different people have different tastes, and everyone can choose a sport depending on his taste. Different sports also require different energy levels. You can start from table tennis which is a mild game and then you can move towards badminton and football. Cricket is also a very good option. Rugby is an excellent option for strength and resistance training.

  1. Do Yoga

Since prehistoric time, yoga and meditation have been used as effective ways of treatment and reducing stress. You can reduce your stress by doing yoga on daily basis. Yoga not only improves your health, it also strengthens your mind and sharpens your focus abilities. If you are looking for yoga classes online, you can explore these and many other products related to yoga on Groupon, which you can get at discounted prices.

  1. Take Gradual Steps

As mentioned already, you cannot achieve a healthy lifestyle only in a single day. It will take a lot of time as well as some struggle on your part to adapt a healthy lifestyle. You can use any of these steps or better yet you can use them in combination to get the maximum results. However, it is highly suggested that you develop will-power and consistency first because, without this, nothing can be achieved.
