Should I use credit cards for downloading apps or playing games online?

No.  To maximize security, consider using a gift card instead. This can protect you from potential fraud and theft loss. While debit/credit cards have fraud protections as to losses (which are different depending on which is used), its a hassle to work through the loss and get your money back in your bank account or transactions off your credit card account.

If a system is hacked, a gift card may save you the hassle, higher losses, and your primary card being compromised.  Thank you, reader Jason for this tip!
