I know it sounds old fashion but is it okay to store credit card info on paper? My mom is always writing down her credit card information on scratch paper. I try to tell her it’s not safe but she won’t listen and I’m trying to convince her that it’s not safe.

No, storing credit card information on paper is not a good idea

Credit card information should be saved electronically with password protection and/or encryption.
