Anti-Phish Tip #3

Hover to Discover

Hover to Discover

Look out for deceptive links

THE TRAP: You receive an email telling you to "click here" to verify your account.

YOUR DEFENSE: Hover over the link (don't click!), or for a touchscreen, press and hold the link (don't tap!) to reveal the actual URL. (Look in the bottom left corner of the browser window.) Don't click on a link unless it goes to a URL you trust.

Remember: Only You can Protect your CalNet Passphrase!
