Anti-Phishing Tips & Tricks

Protect your self against Phishing attacks.
Always be skeptical if anyone calls you on the phone, chats you for example via Skype or Messenger, Emails you or SMS Text you and asking
for personal credentials such as, Usernames, Password, Birth date, Address. Never give out any personal information. Never submit your personal information on the internet.
There is a big chance if a Site on the Internet is asking for your sensitive information

It is a phishing attack

 
 

 
Beware of emails that try to get you to click a link in order to change your account information.
 
You should always be wary and skeptical of email messages that want you to click on a link that makes you change your password, give out sensitive information, or provide bank information. More often than not, these turn out to be phishing scams.
 
Do not follow any links via email to change your sensitive information.
 
Email is an insecure communication form and it is very unlikely that you will get sensitive information through it, so if you suddenly get an email that says you must change your banking information, Paypal information, or other account information, then be wary about clicking it.
 
Only visit sites from known sources and always confirm suspicious information via telephone.
If you get an email from your bank or a service such as Paypal, Amazon, or other sites that require you to change any information on your personal account, you should always confirm it via telephone first before you click on any links that will make you give out your sensitive information.
 
Always use updated anti-virus software with a special anti-phishing filter.
Run always enabled and use an anti-virus program from a legitimate source that comes with an anti-phishing filter. This filter will warn you if you try to visit a fake site that in your email shows PayPal, but when you click it, you're suddenly taken to fake Paypal site
 
Always be very skeptical about sending any of your personal or sensitive information over the Internet.
 
Do not just send sensitive information over the Internet. If it is required for you to do so, then it will always be possible to use the telephone to call the provider (e.g., your bank, Paypal, or Amazon) to confirm that the information is really needed. Double-checking such things will assure that you will never fall victim to identity theft.
