Google partnered with its sister company, Jigsaw, to create a quiz that can be used to help detect phishing emails and scams designed to steal your personal information. It shows you eight suspicious email templates to see whether you can tell the legitimate emails apart from those intended to gain access to your personal information. In a recent study, it was discovered that internet users receive on average 16 malicious emails a month. Read more for a video and a link the the quiz.
“The team drew from materials Jigsaw has used to train thousands of journalists, political figures and activists to craft the quiz. If you don’t answer all the questions correctly, don’t worry — the quiz will help you understand you what the latest phishing techniques look like, so you know what to watch out for in the real world,” according to Engadget.
