Anti-spam

Phishing topic is widely discussed in digital world and of course it was mentioned in our posts previously. Here we just want to refresh some crucial points and explain what Spamdrain does to help you stay safe in terms of phishing.

Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or other sensitive details by impersonating oneself as a trustworthy entity in a digital communication. In most times, phishing target is an individual, however bad guys could also target a group of individuals (small businesses, departments etc). Phishing is usually done by people called scammers. These guys can send e-mails or create web pages that are designed to collect the data. It could be some kind of an online shop that requires credit card details to be put, it could be some service that require your phone number. Talking about email messages, the most popular way to do the phishing is to make user click on a link in an email message. Because these email messages look like legitimate companies users trust them and click on a link.

Luckily, you have Spamdrain filter which blocks these kind of messages and puts them in the blocked list.
We have a powerful engine under the hood that stops the phishing messages and leaves you with a clean and shiny Inbox. At Spamdrain we care about our users by not only filtering such messages but also by blocking the links from these kind of messages. Of course, if you think that the message is valid and you trust it, you can click on “Unlock” button which makes the links clickable (we still recommend you to double-check the source before unlocking any suspicious link).
