Tip of the Week: Beware of Phishing

You must have heard about phishing these days, well in case you haven’t then we have more on this topic in this week’s Tip of the Week.

Phishing is a type of scam designed to steal your personal data (such as credit card numbers, account data, passwords or other valuable information) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity. The person who tries to steal your data directly or indirectly asks you for your secret information such as bank passwords, credit card details etc.

Here is how to stay protected from phishing:

• Avoid filling out forms in email messages that ask for personal financial information.

• Always try to enter the URL address by typing it in the Address bar and clicking it on the links as the links can redirect you to some infected site.

• Never enter personal details in the pages that you do not trust.
