KIDS LEARN CYBERSAFETY
Does it look phishy?
What’s phishing? Phishing is a sneaky weapon that bad actors, scammers, or cyber criminals use in order to get your personal information.
They steal things like your date of birth, passwords, and credit card numbers...but why would they do that?!
Cyber criminals want your personal information in order to get into your online accounts. Once they are in your account, they can steal your savings or pretend to be you.
So how does it happen? Some scammers will ask you to click on a website link, taking you to an unsecure website where they can steal your private information without you knowing!
Others might offer you free gifts like free upgrades or coins for your favourite game to lure you in.
Sneaky criminals might even pretend to be someone you know, like a friend or a well-known company to trick you into giving them your account info.
Before clicking or entering any personal information, remember to double check the link to make sure the website is secure!
