Website and email addresses can easily be manipulated to look like an authentic website or email.
- Don’t Click.
If you were not expecting an email from someone and it has links and/or attachments, don’t click on anything.
- Stay Updated.
Make sure your computer is updated regularly when updates are available.
- Install a firewall.
A firewall limits the potential for unauthorized access to your network and computers.

You should not see a maintenance page after entering login credentials. Legitimate maintenance pages are displayed when first reaching a website and before entering login credentials.

Error messages related to logins are typically displayed directly on the login screen. Also, you should not receive pop-up messages that indicate you cannot use your current browser.
- Error Message
Error messages should not include an amount of time to wait before trying to login again.
