Phishing is a type of cybercrime in which criminals try to trick people into revealing personal information such as login credentials, bank account numbers, or credit card numbers. Pop-ups are one of the most common types of phishing attacks, and they can be especially harmful because they often appear legitimate – like the message you would see when you open a link in an email.

In this tutorial, we’re going to show you how to delete a phishing popup from your phone so that you don’t fall victim to this type of attack.

How phishing attacks work?

Phishing attacks are a type of scam that involve an attacker convincing someone to provide personal or sensitive information. The attacker will often send a phony email or message that appears to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank, company, or other organization. The victim is then asked to provide personal information, such as account numbers or passwords. If the victim falls for the scam and provides the information, the attacker can use it to steal money or other assets.

To avoid being scammed, always be suspicious of emails that seem too good to be true. Do not give away personal information unless you are sure you are talking to someone you trust. Report any phishing messages you receive to your email provider and/or the spam reporting feature on your phone.
