The simple answer is - never click on a link, always type the URL into your address bar. One way to check is to hover over the link, and read the target address, if it is different then it may be a phishing site, but be aware that this can be spoofed as well.

Boomark safe sites (your favorite trading places for example) and install EAL or MetaMask or Cryptonite.

EAL : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/etheraddresslookup/pdknmigbbbhmllnmgdfalmedcmcefdfn

Metamask : https://myetherwallet.github.io/knowledge-base/migration/moving-from-private-key-to-metamask.html

Cryptonite : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cryptonite-by-metacert/keghdcpemohlojlglbiegihkljkgnige

Never click on a link in google searchs, write the adress yourself. Never click on unknown link in general and read everything you can about security.

Always check the address bar of the URL you're going to to make sure that you're actually navigating to the legitimate website.

Always check the URL if it has a correct spelling. You can also check if there sight is secure by looking at the upper left of the address page. There should be a green lock and the word SECURE. Make it a habit to add the pages to your bookmark. Avoid clicking in on adds and make sure you have a separate email for money involved transactions. Use a different password as well.

It would be best to bookmark original website and use bookmarks to reach it. Always check url on address bar. I would recommend to avoid clicking links one emails, personal messages which was sent by unknown senders. Be careful with links which are hidden under URL shortener. When you are using Google search, never click on websites which are shown as ads in search results.

Always go through Google to access a site never click on a link from a forum as these can scammy. If you are using MEW, I'd luck into using MetaMask which is a Chrome extension, as it's easy to put your private key into a phising site and then all your crypto will be gone.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites

Leave your greed outside your email inbox/account; if you see an email/offer that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Always know the true status of your account and investment, don't let a scammer be the one to tell you the status of your account, when you see an email/message saying your account has been deactivated, compromised or what have you with a click here link". Just delete it, most of the time they are phising. If you must visit the site, open your browser and manually enter the site url or open it from your bookmark (you need to make it an habit to bookmark the correct url of the site where you have account or investment)

And very importantly, make Google your friend, when you see a suspected email/offer run it by Google and see what Google have to say about it

I saw a very interesting idea once.

Save your passwords on your browser or use a password manager,  and use 2fa.

If you go to the phishing website , the browser/manager won't recognize it and you will have to type your password. Then you will know something is wrong

The simplest way is to bookmark the sites you frequently visit and always use that to access them. If you get an SSL certificate security warning, even if you're on the correct URL, turn back. If you receive emails/PMs from the services you use that say something is wrong, don't click the link within them and access the site through your bookmarks or manual URL input instead.

At the end of the day, there are very few phishing attacks that are sophisticated enough to fool you even if you just exercise a tiny sliver of caution. The people who had their MEW wallet hacked recently, for example, ignored the certificate issues their browsers gave them. Just keep general security practices in mind and you should be fine.

To avoid scam sites I always go through Google to get where I need to be. If I'm using MEW, I always log on through Metamask. Get yourself a cold storage device it will be a great investment. Look after your private keys like it's your best friend. And stay safe - good luck!

A simple trick I've learned a couple of years ago is to check what website will I be redirected to when I click any hyperlinks present on a webpage. WhereGoes (http://wheregoes.com/ try it for yourself) simply checks the website you'll be landing once you clicked on a link or have been sent a link by someone. This wouldn't do you any harm since the host pc of the said website would take all the potential blows if in case there are malicious programs available in there or whether it's a phishing site or not. Also, when logging in to a website, always check whether it is on HTTPS since it determines whether the website you're visiting is protected and have complied to security standards or not.

It is necessary to remember to the letter all domains of important sites: bitcointalk.to, myetherwallet.com, coinmarketcap.com and some others. This will require effort, but this is the best way to avoid phishing sites!

Have a bookmark upon the trusted website and make use of it. Because, with the same name and same format there were lots of phising sites that will lead you towards trap. While entering a website, be careful and the same will help you stay away from scammers who are the root for those scam sites.

A legitimate company will never ask for your sensitive information by email. If you are contacted by a company, don't reply to the email or call the phone number or go to the website in the communication. Instead, look up the contact info on the company's website and contact them that way. Then you can ask them if there are any problems with your account, if you need to update anything, or whatever else. You can also ask them about the communication you received if they actually sent it.

When you go to a website, read the url bar and make sure it's spelled correctly. Spoof sites will have a url that looks similar to the real one, but it will be off by one character. For example, a fake Coinbase url might look like: http://Co1nbase.com or http://C0inbase.com.

If you ever think an account you have may have been compromised, or that you entered your credentials into a phishing site, take action quickly. Immediately change your password and then check your account profile to make sure all the information is still correct, especially your email address. If you learn there was a phishing attempt or other type of attack on a site where you have an account, change your password as soon as possible. In fact, change your passwords frequently just in case. If you use a service like LastPass then it's just a matter of updating that record so you always know your current password.

A good extra precaution is to also set up 2FA. That means that a hacker would have to not only hack your password, but also your phone in order to access your account. 2FA isn't a silver bullet but I think it can slow down attacks. You can also request your account be frozen if you think it's been compromised, and then be prepared to provide appropriate ID in order to unlock it once you know it's secure again.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites

There is no single method to avoid phishing so that security must came up to yourself. Aside from basics and a must thing to do that were mentioned here, tust want to add that used a secure browser and be sure that you keep it up to date.

Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome are some of the browsers that has some protection against phishing. Although at some cases* that they are being bypassed, still one of the good method aside from doing other methods to avoid being phished.

More importantly, be responsible enough to know the obvious thing and you are free to browse the internet without worres.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites


Most of the phishing url broadcasted through mass email. So never click on any link provided in email.
If you have received any email just like this email I got,: coinbase has started ERC20 support (https://bitcointalk.to/index.php?topic=3336118.msg34892221#msg34892221), never use link in email. Open new tab and move to coinbase through google or direct url bookmark.

Another phishing method is wrong redirection (mostly available in spamy blog posts). Like I am writing Click here for login to coinbase while I attached a link to bitcointalk instead of coinbase.

These are few example of phishing attack.

If you want to avoid phising sites, then install a good anti-virus in your web browser. Also don't click on forward links as they are full of phising sites. You can also bookmark your favorites sites. I hope you have gotten your answer.

You must know first the difference between the real one and the fake one. Always check the address  cause sometimes phishing site can copy the images and writings of the real site but they cannot duplicate the real ones url address.

I always used to use my private key to log into MEW. I always told myself ... why bother with Metamask. One day I decided to put time and effort into learning how to use Metamask and I haven't looked back. It's simple and safe - what more do you need. Don't rely on private key method for MEW as this is a dangerous login method. Stay safe dudes!

If you want to avoid phising sites, then install a good anti-virus in your web browser. Also don't click on forward links as they are full of phising sites. You can also bookmark your favorites sites. I hope you have gotten your answer.
There are websites that has secure SSL so it can't track if it's a phishing link.

Double check links before clicking. Don't be too anxious to make excess money over night. Some phising links are sent by mail for example with an enticing message to lure you to click and out in your pass phrase. Don't! Watch out.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites
1. First, you need to be cautious of all types of information on social networks. Not all are true so consider before sharing it with others.

2. As soon as you read a headline or news, if in doubt, use the search engine to cross-check. If one thing really is serious, you can see that a large number of newspapers and news agencies will not be able to "sit still" without giving any information. Maybe, it's just a sarcasm.

3. Check the URL. If it's too weird, think again. For example, if you read a news story that tells the president not to sing the national anthem at a major US sporting event, it's obviously a problem when it comes from the web that is called .com.de.

4. Be careful with the category of photos attached to the link on Facebook. It is always a factor that encourages the user to click on the link, even though you may not find it in the article, the news that you are reading. Take a screenshot of the image, trim it to fit just the image and use Google Image to see what it really is coming from.
Good luck Grin

Double check links before clicking.
You can put the pointer of your mouse to that link and read if that website is legit or not and if you are not familiar to it, don't continue clicking it.

I have found something useful, if you will install metamask it can also figure out phishing websites. Actually there are so many ways to avoid phishing sites, if you know the correct spelling of the website you used to visit and you found out that it's misspelled then that's a fake one.

Phishing sites are usually used to steal passwords or information. To avoid such sites always check the URL of the site on phishing sites it is different URL of the original site. And it is best to add the original sites in the bookmarks bar. And log in to the site using the bookmarks bar.

You should be careful with filling forms anyhow. I'm particular about airdrop forms that require you to sign up to strange websites. Also always try to bookmark all the authentic sites you visit, and be careful with strange emails. I'd advice you use a browser you don't usually use to open pinks you're not sure off.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites

Boomark safe sites (your favorite trading places for example) and install EAL or MetaMask or Cryptonite.

EAL : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/etheraddresslookup/pdknmigbbbhmllnmgdfalmedcmcefdfn

Metamask : https://myetherwallet.github.io/knowledge-base/migration/moving-from-private-key-to-metamask.html

Cryptonite : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cryptonite-by-metacert/keghdcpemohlojlglbiegihkljkgnige

Never click on a link in google searchs, write the adress yourself. Never click on unknown link in general and read everything you can about security.

good list, i just noticed Cryptonite also is giving "badges" on twitter profiles, very useful.

You can always use some extensions to deal with the phishing sites and avoid it. However, never click on any suspicious links and if you are not sure about any particular link then you can check it on Google or sites like Virustotal - https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/

This site allows you to scan any URL on 67 antivirus platforms and gives you the incident report for the same. Make sure that you have your antivirus installed in your device and you are updating it along with the database frequently.

You just have to avoid malicious websites that normally pop up when you are on a particular site. Always make sure you have inputed the right url in your address bar before navigating. To make things simpler for you, try and install metamask extension to all your browsers and you will always avoid all these phising sites.

It is necessary to check all links and sites to which these links lead.
If you received a suspicious link from a colleague or friend before you go through it, you should make sure that the other end of the line is the one who should be there.

To me, at every regular website there is contact information at the bottom of the page or the "Contact" section of the website, including the following information: Agency, permit, address, telephone number, contact email, ... Fake websites will not have this information.

Pay attention to the URL of the site.  THE url of the phishing site will be different. And it is better to remember the address of the desired site and enter manually.

Pls am new hear I need useful advice on how to avoid phising sites


To avoid becoming a victim of phishing, one must not browse unknown websites or click on any links like “Free Airdrop $100 ETC”. Such links goes to an informational page which demands some of your confidential information.

I would better suggest you to go for antivirus software which allows protect your system from accessing any of these spamming websites which might have an intention of stealing your confidential data.

It is recommended that if you want to visit a website either type URL manually or search in google and then Go. Never go through any link in email.

To avoid entering phishing sites, first, you should never click on links that appear in random emails, pop up windows or instant messages because they may lead you to phish sites. Second, you should always bookmark the sites that you trust and go to those sites using the bookmark function. Third, you can install anti phishing toolbars to help you check whether the site you are entering is the correct one.

Also, if there is any doubt or suspect that the site is phishing or contains some viruses, you can check it with this application, just as you can check the files for the presence of a virus. https://www.virustotal.com/
