In a nutshell, phishing is a technique used to steal your data such as credentials or credit card information. You receive an email, a text message, or even a phone call from someone you know or from some authoritative source you trust. In this email, you’ll find some call-to-action under the false pretenses.
For example, you can get a message from Netflix, a bank, your boss, or even your mom, asking you to:
- click the link below
- send money
- provide your credentials or some sensitive information
