Phishing attacks are a type of fraudulent attempt to trick you into revealing your sensitive information, such as your username, password, 2FA code, etc. Attackers often use social engineering tactics and disguise themselves as CoinUnited.io in electronic communications, making it hard for you to identify the fake messages. In this article, we'll provide you with tips and advice to help you protect yourself against phishing attacks.

Users are commonly tricked by trusted parties:

  • Email fraud

  • Fictitious CoinUnited.io customer support

  • Malware that was obtained from the web

  • SMS containing a malicious attachment/link

  • Social media platforms that have a fake CoinUnited.io link

  • Social media spoofing

  • Wifi phishing for free

How to protect yourself from phishing attacks:

Phishing attack protection requires steps to be taken by both users and CoinUnited.io. As a user, you should be vigilant and take the following measures to protect yourself from phishing attacks:

1. Vigilance is the KEY

Inconspicuous errors like misspelt domain names, odd syntax, unsmooth words, and other typos are common in spoofed messages. Attackers frequently use a feeling of urgency to persuade users to take action.

2. Login to CoinUnited.io through the official website: https://coinunited.io

3. Check and verify whether SSL certificate is given for domain name: coinunited.io

4. Enable Two-Factor Authentication(2FA)

Be careful and avoid sharing your Google 2FA 16 digital backup passwords online or with anyone.

5. Install Chrome Netcraft Extension or Firefox Netcraft Anti-Phishing Extension.

To prevent security flaws, keep your systems and applications updated. Install and update antivirus software. Never join an untrusted wireless network.

6. Reporting Phishing

Report any CoinUnited.io phishing sites you see to our customer support team.
