On more than one occasion you have heard the term “phishing”. The English term refers to a fraudulent attempt carried out by hackers to get passwords by using fake campaigns, which pretend to be reliable platforms.

There are variations, but the modus operandi is practically the same. You get an e-mail warning against an unauthorized access to your mail account and, on the pretext of offering protection, the hackers request your personal data and password. If this happens, just check the return address to verify that it is a fake address that does not come from any legal provider of your bank, social network, or any state body.

Precaution is the most important point to take care of our financial safety, according to the experts. Before revealing any personal data, we must check that it is an authorized and secure site. Banks recommend that you do not access their online bank services by email. In fact, banks never request any data by e-mail. Never send an e-mail requesting such data and if you receive an email like this, delete it as soon as possible.

The steps for safe access are:

  • Open the browser.
  • Type the name of your bank and click “enter”.
  • Check that the address begins with “https” instead of “http”.
  • Then, log into your account with your password.

In this video you will find up to six tips to avoid a disaster and to watch your financial safety.
