How To Tell If A Link Is Safe

You get a link in an email and it looks tempting to click on, but how do you know if it safe? There is no foolproof way to Spot A Phishing Link.

Cyberthieves know how to create a spoof link (you can create a spoof link here).

The rule of thumb is to hover your mouse over the link and look in the bottom left hand corner to see the actual website address.

This is a test we give our clients:

Hover your mouse over “CLICK HERE”, look in the bottom left hand corner to see where the link takes you (should say our site https://www.tracefree.com) …then click on it.

 

 

What happened is that the link instructed your browser to open up your computer.

Don’t worry nothing bad happened. This is the same thing as if you were to upload a picture to Shutterfly or Dropbox.

The point is you can NEVER trust a link to say where it will take you….NEVER.

There is a way to open ANY link without worrying if it is bad.

Open any link safely with TraceFree 

Using almost any browser, when you see a link you are unsure of,  hover over it, then RIGHT CLICK ON IT which opens up a context menu.

Left click on “Open Link in TraceFree” and the link is opened on OUR SERVER, not your computer. Your computer is safe.
