Avoid Phishing Attacks

Be careful anytime you get an email asking for personal information. If you get this type of email, remember this:

  • Don’t click any links or provide personal information until you've confirmed the email is real.
  • If the sender has a Gmail address, report the Gmail abuse to Google.

Note: Gmail won't ever ask you for personal information over email.

When you get an email that looks suspicious, here are a few things to check for:

  • Check that the email address and the sender name match.
  • Check if the email is authenticated.
  • Hover over any links before you click on them. If the URL of the link doesn't match the description of the link, it might be leading you to a phishing site.
  • Check the message headers to make sure the "from" header isn't showing an incorrect name."
