Essential Safety Measures
XS.com recommends the following safety measures for ensuring your security:
Beware of Phishing: Phishing remains a prevalent threat in the digital world. Fraudsters often impersonate trusted companies to obtain your personal information. It’s crucial to exercise caution and avoid opening suspicious email attachments or clicking on links. Take note of email domains that may appear legitimate but could be fraudulent. Additionally, watch for telltale signs such as spelling errors and improper formatting that could signal a phishing attempt.
Secure Browsing: When navigating the web, ensure the websites you visit have the “https://“ prefix and display a secure padlock icon in the URL bar. Be vigilant for website spoofing, a technique where legitimate websites are cloned to harvest customer information, often facilitated by phishing emails or pop-up windows. Always opt for secure internet connections over public Wi-Fi and refrain from saving login details on shared computers. Remember to clear your cache and cookies after each session for added security.
Protection from Viruses & Malware: Malicious malware and viruses can compromise your device’s security and attempt to steal your identity or funds. Avoid downloading files or programs from unverified sources, and keep your device’s antivirus software updated.
