Applying for a credit card online is sometimes the fastest path towards convenient spending. However, just because it's not on paper doesn't mean it should be taken any less seriously.
A credit card application will ask everything you can imagine, from your income and employment details, to your asset and debt holdings. And if you're a new customer for the institution, you may be required to visit a branch and provide Personal Identification.
Convenience comes at the cost of security. To avoid the hassle of fraud during your application, take a few tips.
You should never be giving out your details unless it's on a secured site (these usually begin with https and feature a padlock icon). Scam emails asking for your details are common, so remember that internet banking and applications should only be done through the institution's website.
