Jigsaw Google’s latest quiz can help you spot whether an email is genuine or when it is a phishing email.
Identifying phishing can be harder than you think. Phishing is an attempt to trick you into giving up your personal information by pretending to be someone you know. Can you tell what’s fake?
Take the Google Quiz – you can use a fake name and email address so you give nothing away!
But you will learn what could turn out to be an invaluable lesson.
Be sure to check out link URLs by hovering or using long presses, and to explore the email addresses. Don’t worry, none of the links will work – they don’t want to send you anywhere funny!
Would you know whether an email from Dropbox or Google was genuine or fake?
Always beware of opening attachments – if you’re not expecting it, don’t open it!
To check the status of your accounts such as PayPal, always log-in via the website.
