Whether you are a bingo or slots player on Lucky Cow Bingo, it is very important that you are staying safe when you play games online. Whether you are betting a penny or £10, there is money involved. Online crime is more common than ever so it is important that you are protecting yourself online. We’ve come up with a few ideas as to how you can stay safe when you play on Lucky Cow Bingo.
Of course, you can feel rest-assured that we have our customer’s safety in the forefront of our minds at all times. Your safety is of paramount importance to us and our number one priority. Our servers are kept secure at all times and we have regular independent testing through SQS.
Any transaction or info that is passed to us from our roomies will be encrypted with the latest 128 Bit SSL technology. This is the industry standard for monetary payments. This means that you can play with confidence safe in the knowledge that we are protecting you at all times when you play on our site.
Using the Chatroom
We have one of the best communities around on Lucky Cow Bingo but there are some things to consider when socialising in the chatroom. We actively encourage social interaction in our chatrooms but players should also be aware of how to remain safe while chatting.
Never give out personal information in the chatroom as this could potentially compromise the security of your account. Even info such as your full name or birthday can cause huge damage so don’t risk it and make up a name for your chatroom alias and of course, never reveal any card details or financial info.
Another way to keep safe is to conduct a review of your device’s security. A lot of our players play from their PCs or laptops whereas others prefer a smartphone or tablet. Conducting a mini-audit of your device’s security features is a great way to increase your safety playing bingo online.
Make sure your firewall is activated and consider anti-virus software if you do not already have this installed. A quick scan of your PC or laptop for viruses or malware could prove useful in the medium to long term.
We wouldn’t recommend playing on Lucky Cow Bingo on a device that is not yours but should you feel the need to play on a friend’s computer or a public computer then be sure to check the browser settings.
