Other tips to avoid Phish threats
Here are some tips to avoid getting sucked in:
- Don’t enter passwords into login pages that show up after you click on a link in an email. Bookmark the official login pages of your favourite sites, or type the URLs into your browser from memory.
- Avoid opening attachments in emails from recipients you don’t know, even if you work in HR or accounts and you use attachments a lot in your job.
- Ask the experts, send the email to your IT department or IT support provider and ask them to check the email out to see whether it is genuine.
- If in doubt, don’t give it out! Your personal data simply isn’t worth the vanishingly small chance of winning an iPad from a marketing company you’ve never heard of.
