    How safe?

    I was going to buy something through my Groupon app but I chickened out. How safe is our credit card information if we give it out through our phones? Do you just do it anyway or do you only buy from your computer?

    Your information is just as safe on the Groupon app as it is on the actual Groupon website. I have purchased through the Groupon app and other places many times and never had a problem. I wouldn't be worried about it.

    I agree, purchasing from a company like Groupon, Amazon or Ebay on your phone is just as secure as doing it from your personal computer. I do it quite regularly and I have never had any problems with my information getting into the wrong hands.

    I have also purchased items from ebay and Groupon through my phone. I haven't had a problem with my bank account. Then again I always use my Paypal debit card when I shop through my phone. I carry a small balance on it.

    the apps of big sites are quite reliable but i would still recommend you should prefer buying from computers or devices with antiviruses installed even mobiles are infected these days you never know which app you installed might be keylogging your information

    I do agree that your computer is the safest way to purchase anything online. You have spyware protection on your computer. I have not had any problems though buying through my phone.

    Thanks everyone for the answers. I still don't feel comfortable with purchasing anything with my bank account over the phone. Is there some kind of spyware or protection for phones?
