How do I avoid being phished?

Because phishers are using different methods of deception, there is no single reliable method. Unfortunately, the only integrated solution will be effective.

We recommend you to install anti-virus software and regularly update signatures. Many anti-virus vendors already support a blacklist of dangerous sites. Remember that many anti-virus programs, such as AVG and Avast, are free.

If you do not use web mail services (Gmail, Hotmail, etc) and work with email clients (Outlook, Thunderbird), install anti-spam filters.

Use modern browsers such as Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome and Safari. They include protection against phishing websites.
