Malicious actors are constantly looking for ways to gain illicit access to other users’ funds and assets. However, there are still multiple conventional methods that are commonly used by attackers; one of them is Email Spoofing.
Email Spoofing is a phishing technique in which attackers pose themselves as a legitimate business or person by imitating their original emails. They usually try to convey urgency through the email to push the victims to react immediately without properly checking the source of the email.
What is Anti-phishing Code?
Anti-phishing code is a useful way to prevent phishing attacks. They are quite simple to set up and will add extra security to your accounts. The logic behind them is quite simple. Here’s how it works:
You choose a specific word as your Anti-phishing code. Secure platforms will allow you to set up this code through your account. After setting up this code, you will have it on every email received by the original platform.
This is a very simple and practical way for recognizing phishing emails as any email that doesn’t include your designated anti-phishing code is simply not legitimate.
