The easiest way to protect your Apple ID from scams

Lately the crooks who are stealing accounts, Apple ID, thus intensified, and not only in Russia but also in other countries. Thousands of daily users get a false letter supposedly from Apple: about suspicious login from another device on a new purchase (which actually not) and so on.

We have already told how to distinguish fraudulent sites from real ones, but the number of victims from the actions of attackers continues to grow. So, first and foremost, when you receive emails claiming to be from Apple, please note some little things.

— Check that the body of the email is your Apple ID (it should be)
— Note greeting. If it is formulaic “Dear customer”, then you can not read
— Don’t open attachments from emails
— Do not open links from emails. Copy and paste them in Safari — so you will understand, scammers or not

In addition, Apple will never ask you for passport details, mother’s maiden name, credit card number or CVV. This information is already known.

But, you know, what is the easiest and fastest way to find scammers? If you followed the link, and there you are asked to enter the data Apple ID (it will), just enter the wrong password. On the website about it works, at present, no. And in General, enable two-factor authentication yourself and send fraudulent emails to [email protected].
