Phishing is one of the most reliable and commonly used methods a would-be hacker can take over your digital accounts or even your bank account. These kinds of attacks are also becoming more frequent and more sophisticated over the years.

With the rapid growth of digital platforms and our reliance on them, the capacity for these platforms has also expanded so much so that they can also be used as a tool for scammers looking to steal your information, identity, money or whatever else they can benefit from.
