4: Search Engine Phishing or Malvertising
These are cleverly disguised ads that offer something great, like a vacation. When you click on the ad, you are directed to a site that requires all of your information.
This is when hackers take a popular site, like banks, and re-route the incoming people to their website which is very similar to what it should be!
If the website looks different than it did yesterday or the last time you were there, leave the page and retype the address.
Make sure that there is a picture of a lock on the page that you are on, otherwise your data is not safe.
If you get an unsolicited email with a link, don’t touch the link. You are better off just deleting the email.
