I usually buy all sorts of things online. And last week I had my card used in california at a mcdonalds. The kicker is that I live in ky. I am assuming someone had to get my info online. I need to know how to protect my info or figure out how it happened

Hello @shawnwayne and Welcome to the Webroot Community!

Not necessarily via online as there's so many ways so have a look here: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/what-to-do-credit-card-stolen,news-25266.html and here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Credit_card_fraud

I would suggest that you contact your card holder and tell them and they will help you sort it out and in most cases they will send you a new card with a new number.
