As Rob and Jeff show, it’s very hard sometimes to discern between a real email and a phishing email. It’s even more important now with stimulus-hungry scammers creating an even bigger phishing net!  Here are some tools to help.

4 Key Tips for Safe Email and Browsing Habits:

  1. Save Your Passwords – Use a different password for every site. Save them using a password manager… We like 1Password, iCloud Keychain, Chrome, but choose the one that works for you. 

When you receive an email:

  1. Look at the “To” field – if it’s blank, it’s not really meant for you.
  2. Check the “From” field – is it a recognizable email?
  3. Don’t Click! Hover over the URL… do you recognize it? If not, delete.

Remember you can always proactively reach out (call, text, new email) to the sender to confirm an email’s authenticity… it’s so much better for all involved (esp. if they’re in your contacts list) to be safe rather than sorry. However, don’t forward or reply to a suspicious email to try and confirm it.

Thankfully there are way more good folks in the tech industry than those that want to cause trouble. And since we’re definitely the Good Guys (and Gals), the Thingee team is ready to jump in and help you safely take advantage of tech tools and resources to make your business more competitive.
