Gmail’s phishing alerts warns you of suspected messages.

Gmail’s Phishing alert service warns you whenever you get any message from a suspected source. These alerts are triggered to let the end user know that the message might not be from the person whom he claims to be in the mail. 

Being focussed on helping laymen become tech enthusiasts, i often write about critical topics which everyone needs to be aware of, in general to protect and secure themselves in the cyberworld.

Earlier, i wrote How not to get Phished,Learn from Phil the Fish and Learn more about Phishing which certainly helped readers understand the simple ways of protecting themselves. However, there still can be situtations when you are duped in such a way that you fall prey to such exercises. 

Whenever you get an email in your Gmail mailbox, Gmail does a virus check against it, runs it spam filters to see if it has indeed come from a spammer and also runs a Phishing alert service to alert the user if this is indeed a Phishing mail.

The above figure clearly depicts how Gmail can help you stay safe from Phishing. However, have in mind that Gmail’s service can also be duped by some tricksters. 

Are there any ways to help me stay safe and not get Phished?

In general these are the basic steps you should be following to stay away from Phishing scams :

  • Always go through the URL of the website. A closer look at the URL can certainly give you clues with regards to the fraudulent websites.
  • Never reply to emails asking for your bank account number, internet user details etc. Remember NO BANK asks you for such information. If they do, CHANGE YOUR BANK.
  • The old saying “When in doubt, talk”, holds true here as well. If you are in a doubt about the email/website, just take the phone and call up the call center of the service to get an explanation on your doubt.
  • Forward spam that is phishing for information to spam@uce.gov and to the company, bank, or organization impersonated in the phishing email. Most organizations have information on their websites about where to report problems.
  • Don’t open email attachments sent to you by strangers. Email attachments can have programs which can affect your computers once opened.
  • Always follow steps to a healthy PC. You can read my previous post 4 steps to a Healthy PC to learn more on this.
Recently there has been a spurt in the phishing attacks and therefore this Gmail alert certainly helps users stay safe to an extent. Google also issued a statement recently informing users that the security lapses are not within Gmail but its the Phishing attacks which are responsible.
