This months tips and tricks will focus on ‘Fake Websites’. Occasionally, when browsing the Internet, you can find websites made by bad actors that look like real websites. The purpose of these sites includes tricking you into filling in personal/private information, sending money to a bad actor, or downloading malware onto your computer.

You can stumble across fake websites by clicking on a risky link or ad on another website, going to an infected website that redirects you to a fake website, accidentally mistyping a website address or finding a fake site through a search engine result.
