Internet access is happening in almost every city and village today. As a result, more and more people are joining the Internet. With the help of smartphones, users are able to use the internet easily. However, if users are not alert, they can be victims of phishing, hacking and online fraud. Many people may lose their money as well. In order to overcome such cyber hazards, government institutions, such as cyber-income tax departments and banks send emails to protect the user’s financial statements, which contain information about how to avoid cyber attacks. If you can not see these e-mails here, here I am telling you how to avoid cyber threats like phishing and hacking. But first of all, we know what is phishing after all.
What is phishing?
Under fishing, hackers send fake e-mails to users by making the fake ID of any company or government person. This hacker’s attempt is to ensure that the user shares his password and credit or debit card details with him. Hackers in India do fraud in two ways through first e-mail and another via SMS.
How to Protect Your Bank Account from Hacking -Useful Tips
Keep in mind that no bank or IT official asks for your debit and credit card details on official SMS, email and phone calls.
1. The first way (Via SMS)
In this, an SMS is sent to the user’s phone, which provides information about the debit card cancellation. These messages are sent in the English language so that they are exactly like the message of the bank. Some people also ask the user to provide bank account information as income tax officer so that they can return IT returns. In both of these, the user is asked to give an OTP. As soon as the user receives an OTP receipt, the hacker calls them and takes OTP. Before that, the user gets the money cut from his bank account via some known OTP.
2. The second way ( E-mail)
In this, hackers create a fake website like a bank. Then e-mails users, It says that if the user does not renew his card it will be closed. In this case, there is a link given in the mail which the user can access when he clicks on a Fake Website. After this, the user is asked to download the anti-virus firmware given in the Warning pop-up message, which is actually a malware. As soon as the user downloads that malware, the hacker gets access to his computer and he starts scanning your computer remotely. From this, hackers hack the user’s financial data such as bank account, debit/credit card, and private photos and sell online.
Protect Your Bank Account from Hackers:
1. Never open a website that is without https:// URL.
2. Google issued a new anti-phishing security check for the iPhone and iPad users. Through this, if users click any of the phishing emails from the Gmail app in the phone, they will have the warning message.

4. Keep in mind that your mobile number should be registered with your bank so that every transaction information will be sent through your message.
