Mobile Phones More Popular Way to Check Internet

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

When you log on to the Internet - are you using your computer, or your smartphone?

A new report shows 15 percent of adults and 75 percent of teens and young adults mainly use their cell phones to access the Internet.

Matt Boudreau with Your Electronic Warehouse says online buyers need to be careful about what sites they're purchasing from. "The key is you want to deal with someone that's reputable, you want to make sure that just like any other business you would facilitate, you don't want to deal with somebody that you don't feel safe with," he said.

Boudreau says one thing online buyers need to be especially careful about is payment options - and recommends using secure providers like Paypal.
