Phishing Prevention

The internet is filled with phishing threats aiming to steal sensitive information, but businesses can defend themselves with powerful web gatekeepers, security training, threat intelligence, and IT policies. By taking a vigilant, layered approach to protection, Shopify businesses can traverse digital waters safely while phishers are left hungry and discouraged - their tactics ineffective against savvy merchants. With StoreLock, you can confidently navigate phishing risks.

Understanding Phishing Prevention

Staying safe online means keeping an eye out for phishing scams. These are sneaky attempts by cybercriminals to steal your personal information by pretending to be someone you trust over email, text, or phone. Knowing how to spot and stop phishing helps protect your data.

Scammers often create urgency to pressure you into quick action without thinking things through. "Your account will close!" is a common tactic. Or they pretend to be someone legitimate by spoofing caller IDs and email addresses. They use false links and attachments to capture logins or install harmful software.

You can beat phishers at their own game. Never send sensitive info or click links from unknown, unsolicited contacts. Always double-check who really sent that message before you act by looking for odd email addresses or typos. Hover – don’t click on links to preview destinations. Legit businesses won’t ask for data via email.

Make things more complicated for scammers by using strong, unique passwords and two-factor authentication security steps for all critical accounts. Keep your devices and apps up-to-date to stay a step ahead. Finally, learn about the latest schemes circulating so you can share warnings.
