Following recent reports that 46% of the British public don’t know what the term ‘Phishing’ means, eBay.co.uk has today published two new online safety videos to educate users on how to identify and protect against phishing and how to buy safely through eBay.
Presented by Garreth Griffith, Head of Trust & Safety for eBay.co.uk, the videos provide clear guidance to users, distilling a range of advice and tips into easy-to-watch short programmes.
The Trust & Safety Team at eBay work to ensure eBay.co.uk’s community of users are protected from the potential pitfalls associated with trading online.
Commenting on the new safety videos which can be viewed through eBay.co.uk’s Safety Centre, Griffith said: “Educating users about online safety has always been at the heart of what we do. Although there is a tremendous amount of information available about online safety, it’s a fact of life that many people don’t take the time to read and digest everything they need to know to keep them abreast of how to stay safe online.
Griffith concluded: “Users of eBay.co.uk, whether old or new, should visit the Safety Centre regularly so they can learn more about online safety; refer to our rules and policies to check what is and isn’t allowed and to understand how we work to always maintain a safe and secure site for the millions of users who use our site.”
