Phishing is the attempt to obtain private information such as usernames, passwords and credit card information using fake emails from trustworthy sites.

Phishing is a common tactic used by cybercriminals to steal personal information from unsuspecting victims. The emails may appear to be from a legitimate source, such as your bank or credit card company, but they are actually fake messages designed to lure you into revealing your personal information.

To protect yourself from phishing scams, always be skeptical of unsolicited emails and never provide any personal information unless you are absolutely sure that the email is legitimate. You can also use anti-phishing software to help protect yourself from these scams.
