Whether you are trying to pay a bill, order something online or just trying your luck at an internet casino, safety of the payment system is of paramount importance. A single mistake can result in phishers and scammers stealing your financial details, which could prove to be very costly. So, how do you make sure that your financials are safe while spending money online? By sticking with reliable websites and trusted payment systems. How do you make sure they are safe options? That's exactly what we are going to discuss next with the help of the following points.
Safety Begins at Home
The computer you are using to surf the internet is the first thing that you need to secure. Make sure that the OS running on it is original first because that's the most important aspect of cyber safety. Next, you need to install a good antivirus software with real-time internet protection. This will give you continuous protection even if you are led towards a phishing page or a site that's deemed unsafe. The antivirus will detect and stop suspicious activities automatically and warn you of the danger immediately.
The main advantage that electronic wallets have over using credit cards and debit cards directly is the fact that they keep your card information safe. For example, internet casinos are a hotspot for cyber criminals, so they are always looking to phish card info from unsuspecting users and that's precisely why online casino PayPal payment option is the safest choice to make. PayPal being one of the world's most popular and also one of the most reliable online payments system, your financial info remains safe with them and you don't ever have to risk giving away your valuable financial information on a scam site or phishing page. The best part is that almost everyone accepts PayPal these days!
Do Your Research
If you are going to play at an unknown internet casino or shop at an ecommerce site that you know little of, use Google. See what other people are saying about the site and go through user experiences to get an idea of what to expect. Some sites even have a trust score for users to check.
Check the Link/URL
The best and often the only way to avoid an active phishing attack is to check the URL in your browser or mail. For example, does it say https://amazon.com or does it say https://amazon.us/gb5hgy/login-id? Most authentic websites do not use a string of random alphabets at the end like that and Amazon USA is just called Amazon.com, so there's no amazon.us domain. Beware of little details like that at all times.
The rule of thumb is, if something looks out of place, then that's because it is! Don't take chances with your finances online and be safe by following the few simple precautions mentioned here.
Over the years, the import tracking site Zauba has revealed countless devices to us and this time it's the Galaxy Tab S3 which was sited. It isn't uncommon for unreleased gadgets to be sent to India for R&D purposes, especially when it comes to Samsung. Here we see the LTE variant of the Galaxy Tab S3 with the model number SM-T825 along with a price tag. However, the Tab S3 will probably be priced higher than ₹34,138 ($503 approximately) mentioned in the description.
There will also be a Wi-Fi only variant of the Tab S3 (SM-T820) with a lower price tag but otherwise identical specs. Speaking of specs, we have little to no idea about what Samsung will bring to the market with its next flagship tablet, other than the fact that it will sport a Super AMOLED 9.7-inch 2K display just like its predecessor. Rumors suggest that the Tab S3 will possibly be released in early 2017, but it can get delayed due to the negative impact which the Note 7 disaster had on Samsung.

Google surprised a lot of people when they released Android N in its beta version yesterday, especially since Android M itself was released just a few months ago in last October. Many of the market leading smartphone manufacturers have not even been able to update their high-end devices to Marshmallow yet. Samsung is the worldwide leader when it comes to Android smartphones and things do not exactly look good when they have not been able to update their major flagship devices like the Galaxy Note 5 to Marshmallow in all locations yet; especially, since the next iteration of the OS is already out.
Back in February, it did look like Samsung was about to make sure that Marshmallow reaches all their high-end devices everywhere, within a few months. However, things did not pan out that way and many regions are still waiting for it impatiently. Taking the fact into account that Android 6 went official about six months ago, it seems like Samsung is living up to its name for being slow and unpredictable with software updates. After seeing how slow Samsung is even with their most expensive phones from 2015, things are looking really dim for our low or mid-range Samsung smartphones as far as being updated to Android Marshmallow is concerned.
