Let’s Focus On Phishing

Okay, what’s phishing? Phishing is a cyber-attack method designed to steal user data, such as login credentials and credit card numbers.

Often phishing hackers will try to make you think you’re on an official website—when it is just a fake website that is disguised to match the look and feel of the legitimate site.
