Phishing continues to grow more sophisticated as technology advances. Gone are the days of receiving emails from Nigerian princes who have a fortune for you provided you can help them out. Instead emails look like they’re from someone you know with links they want you to click so they can steal your information. What’s a person to do?
Well, staying informed about the latest the scams is one way to help keep yourself safe. Another way, is take this phishing quiz to see if you recognize these attempts when they come into your inbox!
To begin, click the Take the Quiz button, then create a name and email address (neither need to be real, they’re just there to help make the quiz more realistic). Next you’ll be shown emails and have to guess if they are legitimate or phishing. Then you can check your results. If you chose correctly, a big thumbs up! If not, they show you why it was a phishing email and how what you could have checked in order to avoid getting phished.
Work your way through the quiz and you’ll have a much better idea of what to look for in the future to keep your information safe.
