How you can protect to yourself from email phishing?

Phishing is a kind of identity theft which is growing in popularity amongst hijackers. By using fraudulent webpages and false emails account, perpetrators attempt to steal your personal data - most commonly Gmail account passwords and CREDIT CARD or any other Bank account information.

Be wary of e-mails asking for secret information - especially information of a financial nature. Legitimate organisations will never request such type of sensitive information via “email”, and most banks in the USA, UK and Canada will tell you that they won't ask for your information unless you're the one contacting them.

Don't get pressured into providing sensitive information related to yourself. Phishers like to use scare tactics, and may threaten to disable an email account or delay services until you update certain information. Be sure to contact the merchant directly to confirm the authenticity of their request.

Make sure you familiarize yourself with a webpage’s privacy policy. The majority of commercial websites have a privacy policy page to declare their working policy, which is usually accessible at the footer of the page or you can it on some other different page of the website created only for privacy policy. The most useful thing to look for is the website's privacy policy on whether it will or will not sell its email account list.

Most of the spam you receive on a daily basis emails - as well as potentially dangerous phishing emails in Gmail or any other website - is coming to you because a site you have signed up to has sold your Gmail address to another company. If you're not ok with this happening, it might be worth reconsidering whether you want to sign up to that site.

Watch out for generic-looking requests for account information. Fraudulent Google emails are often not personalised, while authentic e-mails from your bank often reference an account you have with them. Many phishing emails massages begin with "Dear Sir/Madam", and some come from a bank with which you don't even have a financial account.

Never submit confidential email account information via forms embedded within email messages. Senders are often able to track all information entered on website.

Never use links in a Google e-mail to connect to a website unless you are absolutely sure they are authentic. Instead, open a new browser window and type the URL manually into the address bar. Often a phishing webpage will look identical to the original - look at the address bar to make sure that this is the case.

Make sure you maintain effective software to combat email phishing. Some Internet Security automatically detects and blocks fake websites. It also authenticates major banking and shopping   websites.
