Is entering credit card numbers online safe?
Yes, it’s safe to shop online with your credit card, although it does depend on the site where you’re shopping as well as the security of both the device you’re using and the network you’re connected to. Those encryptions help protect your credit card information from cybercriminals.
Can a Website steal your credit card info?

Is it safe to give your credit card details over the phone?
Unless you initiated the phone call, never give out your credit card number: This may seem like common sense, but it can happen all too easily and quickly. When booking a reservation with your credit card over the phone, have the merchant read back to you the itinerary, such as when booking airfare or a hotel stay.
Can you use a debit card when it asks for a credit card?
Yes and no. You can indeed use a debit card at all of the same places that you can use a credit card, and you have the option of signing for debit card purchases rather than using a PIN.
