How to Protect Yourself From the phishing attack?
When you receive a “Docs file” in the format of image you will redirect to Gmail login page. We suggest you “ check your URL to know the location of the source that is a secure or not, before login your personal details on that website”.
At the time of phishing email actually, you see “accounts.google.mail” in the URL you look forward to signing in.
To protect yourself, you need to take care of a point that can save you. Let’s take a look at Location bar.
The phishing scammers use “Data URI” its middle part may make you move forward but when you look at the start you will see “data:text,html” instead of “https//”. “Data:text,html” is a wide string text when you look at whole URL at the end its look like this.
It’s a very large length of the text. It’s a file that opens in a new tab and prompts you to the Gmail Fake Login Page which sends your personal account details to Scammers.
