Phishing is a fraudulent attempt, usually made through email, to steal your personal information. The hackers usually attack people to steal their information such as passwords, ID and details of credit cards which can then be used to withdraw the money from their account or to blackmail the owners.
The best way to protect yourself from phishing is to learn how to recognise a phish and prevent yourself from getting caught in the phish net.
If you aren’t 100 percent certain of the sender’s authenticity, don’t click on attachments or embedded links; both are likely to result in malware being installed.
Please be aware that the hackers might fake the emails from technical support and ask you to send your credentials via email to verify the information. Do not send your private information such as passwords, credit card or ID information by email. Please only use Wealth App Help Center and Support Tabs to communicate with the Customer Support Service.
Also, do not install the updates of the application from the side resources. All the Wealth App updates will only be available on Apple AppStore and Google PlayStore.
