Phishing attacks really are the worst. They are a page that looks exactly like a legitimate login page you are familiar with (such as Google, Facebook, Twitter etc) but behind the scenes they are actually sending your email address and password to a third party. With these details they can cause all sorts of havoc.
Today Google has announced Password Alert which is a Chrome extension that will warn you if you enter your details into a site that isn’t one theirs. Everyone can slip up if you’re not paying close attention, so this app should help keep your login details safe.
I highly recommend this if you are a Google + Chrome user. I have seen far too many client’s details being compromised from a moment’s inattention.
