Don’t Take the Bait

 

The YouTube channel Minute Physics put out a great video today warning of a YouTube phishing scam. It is always important that you copy and paste the link text from email and untrusted sources into your browser instead of clicking on the link directly. These links can be cleverly disguised and take you to sites that look legitimate. Once there, you could provide sensitive info to the bad guys.  I would take the advice on this clip a step further by turning on two-step authentication on your Google accounts.

I have placed a link below that explains two-step verification from Google. Now practice safe linking by copying and pasting these links below into your address bar on your browser and not clicking on them directly.
