No, nobody has used your Apple ID to steal you, be very careful with the latest scam on Apple!

It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish phishing attacks, and it is not solely because of the complexity they can achieve. We have less time to focus on the details of each email, and in many cases we just want to finish quickly to check the inbox and move on to something else, something that criminals are taking advantage of to try to take away our data. And of course, Apple's services are not exempt.

With different strategies that, of course, include the forgery of Apple support emails, sales or even the login page of Apple ID or iCloud, it may seem at first that it is something real , Nothing could be further from the truth. You just have to stop a bit in reading the mail to know that it is a scam .

For example, we have a message that shows an alleged purchase invoice from the Apple Online Store. Apparently, someone would have made an unauthorized charge with our account, which will put many users on alert, and we are asked to identify ourselves in order to cancel it. Needless to say, we should not even press the link that is attached, since Apple would never ask for our data.

The important thing is, as I said before, avoid being victims of hurry or falling into the false alarm that tries to create for us to pick up the hook. And if you have fallen, immediately change the passwords of your account, as well as those that can share username and password.

In addition, it is very important that you activate from the settings of your account the verification in two factors , thus not only the password would be necessary to enter, also a unique code generated by the connected devices. This way you can complicate the day to the attackers .

And you, what measures do you take to protect yourself from these threats?
