How to Fight Phishing

Phishing is a scam that can fool innocent people into doing something they would never do otherwise (such as divulge passwords and credit card information). You can minimize phishing in Internet Explorer:

1Click the Tools button on the toolbar.

You’ll see a drop-down list.

2Choose Phishing Filter to display that submenu.

The Phishing Filter pops into action.

3Confirm that the second command reads Turn Off Automatic Website Checking.

If so, you’re done; otherwise, continue.

4Choose Turn On Automatic Website Checking.

A special security dialog box, Microsoft Phishing Filter, appears.

5Click OK.

The phishing filter is now activated.
