Tag: #how to spot phishing
In January 2021, Google has registered 2,145,013 phishing sites, 27% more than the 1,690,000 recorded in January 2020. Scammers use these phishing sites to create fake pages of banks, social media platforms, and other online services that need login and password access. When you get an unsolicited call, message, or email, you need to check the source carefully, and if you’re in doubt, don’t engage with the sender. This could be a phishing attempt. Since checking the source could be difficult for many internet users, you need to check the email itself to know if it is legitimate or a phishing attack.
