5 Easy Tips to Spot a Phishing Email
Survey: 94 Percent of Internet Users Think They Recognize Phishing Emails - but Half of Them Keep Clicking. 5 Easy Tips to Spot a Phishing Email

NordVPN conducts a survey that shows almost all Internet users "know" how to avoid phishing. However, millions of phishing scams keep happening. Here are 5 simple tips about spotting malicious messages.

This suggests that although users may recognize basic malicious emails, more sophisticated phishing attempts often still work.
