Update the protection of your PC
Before you start adding items to your cart, Repokar urges you to make sure you have effective and updated antivirus, antispy software and firewall running.
Use Strong Passwords
Make your personal passwords at Repokar long and strong – it's never more important than when banking and shopping online. We advise you to combine capital and lowercase letters with numbers and symbols to create a more secure password.
Avoid Public Terminals
It's a bad idea to use a public computer to make purchases, as it is not safe, but if you do that, please remember to log out every time you use a public terminal.
Turn your computer off when you’re finished shopping.
Many people leave their computers running and connected to the Internet non-stop – this exposes your PC to the greater risk. To be safe, our team recommends to better turn it off when it's not in use. Also, don't forget to always log out of sites you've been using. Simply closing your browser is not enough to ensure privacy.
Never Share your Repokar username and password with anyone else.
Even if these are people you know, better keep these data details private to avoid unpleasant surprises of buying a car you never ordered or getting a bill for something you didn't need. For example, your little kids might think it'll be fun to give mom and dad a pleasant surprise, getting a new family auto.
