What is anti-phishing?

Anti-phishing is a range of techniques and solutions designed to prevent phishing attacks. Anti-phishing software works to detect phishing content on websites, emails, and other digital sources before it can harm users. The software uses advanced phishing protection techniques (e.g., purpose-built and trained AI models) to identify and filter out threats, often disguised as legitimate emails, ads, links, or requests.

How to prevent phishing attacks

Here’s how to protect yourself from phishing attacks.

Use anti-phishing solutions

Reliable anti-phishing solutions (such as VPNs, antivirus software, or dedicated browser extensions) can help detect and block phishing attempts before they reach you. These solutions work in many different ways, from scanning incoming emails to checking URLs for signs of phishing. Choose a reliable anti-phishing solution — and it’ll do the work for you.

Stay skeptical online

Phishing attacks come in various forms — from a fake text about your Amazon order to a scam call about getting a cheaper phone plan. It’s important to always stay vigilant and never share sensitive information unless you’re sure the request is from a legitimate source. Don’t trust anyone unless they can verify who they are — better to be safe than sorry.

Multi-factor authentication improves your NordVPN account security.

Enable multi-factor authentication

While multi-factor authentication (MFA) doesn’t directly prevent phishing, it can play a crucial role in protecting your compromised accounts if you’ve fallen prey to phishing. For example, if you’ve been tricked into sharing your account credentials with a cybercriminal, MFA will make it significantly harder for them to log in.
