    Xbox Live security

    I know there's a fair few Xbox Live users here, so I have a quick question.

    Have any of you used your credit cards over Xbox Live?

    There is the facility to store card details, but I've got idea how good the security is.

    Any advice would be appreciated... cheers

    Via the Console or online your card details are encrypted so unless someone is watching over your shoulder then I'd be okay with it. I always prefer to buy the xbox live subscription online from a retailer as its about a tenner cheaper than ordering it directly from xbox live. Cheers.

    Xbox live is just as secure as any other 128SSL transaction, considering the 1000's of people on there i wouldn't personally worry.

    Cheers for the help guys.

    The reason I asked was because I wanted to get some Live points, but didn't want a huge denomination I'd get in the shops, and on Live they sell them in smaller denominations.

    Thanks

    If you are buying gold membership be warned - i opted for just 1 months gold membership and the following month they automatically took out another months worth off the card i used without informing me. It used to be quite a lot of hassle to get them to remove the card from the account but i think it has improved slightly now. It's worth checking before you do though.
