4 Steps to detecting Phishing emails 100% of the time.

The number one way we get infected with malware, ransomeware, Trojans, etc is through email links, and attachments.

Follow these 4 steps to detect a nefarious email every time:

  1. Check the FROM email address – this will usually alert you this is SPAM, but it can be spoofed.
  2. Check for misspelled words and bad grammar.
  3. Check the URL – never click on an embedded hyperlink!
    • Right-click the URL in the email – copy and past it into a text file to verify it.
  4. Never open or install an email attachment. Take the time to verify the source.
