Take This Google Quiz to See if You Can Spot Phishing Emails.

**Hello, click here to get a free Samsung Galaxy S9, only valid from now until 23rd of January 2019!

If you fell for that, there is a bigger chance you might fall for the scams in Google’s phishing quiz.

Today, Google launched a short interactive quiz to test how good you are at identifying phishing emails and also teach you how you can better spot them.

The quiz is divided into 8 categories of emails, all of which have been inspired by real-life phishing scams, and your job is to identify them.

According to Google’s Jigsaw unit (the team behind this):

“We created this quiz based on the security trainings we’ve held with nearly 10,000 journalists, activists, and political leaders around the world from Ukraine to Syria to Ecuador. We’ve studied the latest techniques attackers use, and designed the quiz to teach people how to spot them.”

Don’t forget to share your scores, and don’t ask me for mine.  😁

    So I scored 6/8……

    The first one I missed is the PDF from a school administration.

    There was nothing wrong with the email address and not all schools use .edu (This isn’t US-centric now). Since there was no other information about the pdf file, I feel that question is misleading.

    The second is about permission for an app, they didn’t indicate it was an app, just that I clicked a link that is asking for permissions. Hovering on the app link didn’t show anything (first alert) and the permission is to read my messages and have access to my settings. That’s a bit of a stretch for any app permission o.

    Anyways, it was fun to do….


    Welcome back!!!
