How to recognize a phishing site?

Phishing is a type of internet fraud in which attackers try to obtain confidential information from users: login, password, bank card details using an exact copy of official pages.

All phishing sites try to distract the user from studying the page and searching for signs of forgery. They often play on human greed, offering to win a big money prize. In addition, the attackers set a timer so that users hurry with entering personal data.



Scammers always register similar domains. For example, instead of the official “facebook.com“, you can see “onllinfacebook.com“. Services can also be located on the “facebook.site.com” subdomain, which is also a phishing site.

Original sites, use SSL encryption to transfer user data. With this technology, the secure site address starts with “https://“. But if a bank or airline site starts with “http://“, this is a reason to question the security of the page.

Also, it is worth paying attention to the absence of user agreements and strange contacts, different structures of pages with the original site and suspicious payment forms, grammatical, spelling and design errors. If the site caused your suspicion, ignore its payment form.
