What is phishing?
Scammers send you to a website that mimics the site of a trustworthy organization. They need you to open it and type in some of your personal data, for example, your Apple ID or bank card details. Then scammers will use the information they tricked from you to rob you or blackmail you. This type of fraud is called phishing and no device is safe from it.
What websites are usually faked?
Fraudsters can fake online services like banks or even Apple. The web address in the link may look very similar to the one you know, with just one tiny symbol giving away the impostors. But this difference is really hard to notice, even for experienced users.
How can I protect my data?
The answer is simple—turn on Anti-Phishing. The Anti-Phishing feature automatically checks the links opened on the device for fraud, malware, and other web threats. If the website is dangerous, its link will be blocked.
Anti-Phishing checks not only the links you open, but also online activity of the apps. This may cause some app features to be blocked. In Japan, the app also blocks links to restricted websites.
When Anti-Phishing is on, you can monitor the real-time statistics:
