Safeguard Your Family from Phishing

Phishing

Regardless of how innocent its name sounds, phishing is undoubtedly one of the darkest practices lurking within the Internet. In short, it is the criminally fraudulent attempt to get a person’s private information, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, through an email.

How it Works

The email is disguised to look like it’s from a trustworthy source, possibly branded with a well-known logo, and often asks you to verify account numbers, passwords, credit card details or other sensitive info. The info is then used to buy things, sign up for credit cards, steal your identity and other criminal activities.

What You Can Do

With Cox High Speed Internet service, you get free protection from phishing with the Cox Security Suite. Powered by McAfee®, the Cox Security Suite is designed to protect your home computer setup from phishing as well as adware, spyware, spam, viruses, and other online hazards.

Report Phishing

To help us fight this predatory practice, Cox customers are encouraged to report and immediately forward any phishy email that’s landed in their inbox. Here you’ll find the steps for reporting and safely forwarding the suspect email to the Cox reporting center.

For more information on how to protect you and your family from phishing, here are practical tips you can easily use in your day-to-day browsing.
