Understanding Phishing and How to Keep Yourself Safe

At Superbet, we hold your privacy in high regard, and we're committed to providing you with tips to safeguard your account.


What is Phishing?

Phishing is a form of social engineering where malicious actors attempt to acquire sensitive information or install malware to pilfer confidential data like logins, card details, or passwords. This deceptive practice typically occurs through electronic means, such as emails that appear to originate from untrustworthy sources.


Exploring Smishing and Vishing


Smishing involves using text messages for similar deceitful purposes, while vishing employs phone calls in phishing attacks.


Attackers may use email, phone, or text messages to coax you into interacting with them, aiming to gain unauthorized access to your email addresses or other personal information.

Protecting Yourself from Phishing Attempts: What Not to Do

  • Never disclose personal or security details via phone, email, or text messages, especially through links provided in emails or texts.
  • Avoid making rushed decisions. Superbet will never pressure you to make instant transactions.
  • Refrain from clicking on links in emails, messaging apps, or advertisements without careful scrutiny.
  • Exercise caution when communicating on social media, whether through phone calls, emails, texts, or links.
  • If in doubt, hang up the call, delete the email, or discard the text message without opening it.



Taking the Right Steps: What to Do


  • If you're uncertain about the authenticity of a request via phone call, email, or text message, it's best to reach out to us directly.
  • Stay vigilant. Scrutinize email addresses, phone numbers, and URLs for any signs of suspicion. Pay attention to grammatical errors and inconsistencies in information.
  • Keep your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs up to date for added security.


Tips for Securing Your Account

  • Utilize unique passwords that incorporate a mix of words, numbers, symbols, and both upper and lower case letters.
  • Employ a password manager to generate and store complex passwords for each site and service you use.
  • Avoid using your network name or username as your password.
  • Steer clear of passwords based on easily accessible information like birth dates, phone numbers, or family names.
  • Exercise caution when encountering suspicious emails, text messages, or links. If you're uncertain about the source, avoid opening it to prevent falling victim to a phishing attempt.
  • Double-check the accuracy of contact information from individuals reaching out to you. If an email address looks suspicious, avoid opening the email.
