Phishing Attacks come in many different forms, but the end goal is always to get your personal information. You need to be aware and pay close attention to the emails you open and the websites you go to. For more information on various phishing attacks, click on the picture above to follow the link.
One of the best things you can do to protect yourself from phishing is to increase your security. Set up accounts with multi-factor authentication and keep your software up-to-date to help avoid phishing attacks. You can also install security software like anti-malware protection to help filter out and prevent attacks. Another great idea is to back up your data so you have it in the unlikely case you need it.
It’s a good habit to avoid clicking or following any links in emails unless you are certain the sender is safe. The most common way hackers get your info is by making you follow a link, where they trick you into entering your personal information. If you question whether something is legitimate, then don’t click on the email and follow the link. You should only follow links if you know the person or the email comes from an official source.
