At least once, you will be sent an odd link that makes you feel uneasy. It looks like something you’ve seen before but asks you to enter or change your password. Perhaps it even asks you for some personal information in order to verify your identity.
It could be a text message or email from someone pretending to be your boss, email service, a friend, or your bank. The message may contain something along the lines of needing your information because you have been a victim of cybercrime. However, this is actually where you put yourself in danger.
It is likely a scheme that looks legitimate. However, look for grammar issues, spelling issues, and other inconsistencies. If you are truly worried, directly contact the person or organisation it is said to have come from in order to understand whether or not it is a scam.
Trust your instinct when it comes to these links and think before you click.
