Phishing is a form of cybercrime. It is a way scammers attempt to obtain sensitive information from you, such as your username and password, account information, or Social Security number. Phishing attacks often start with an email, phone call, or text message by someone posing to be someone else or a legitimate institution. Once you're contacted, you may be lead to enter your username and password on an illegitimate site that imitates the real one, to disclose personal information over the phone, or to click on a bad link in an email or a text message that results in the scammer gaining access to your information. This information can then be used to gain access to important accounts such as your email, bank, or other accounts, and can result in identity theft and financial loss.
How to recognize phishingA scammer may call, email, or text you, pretending to be someone from Fluz or another company or authority you know or trust. Remember that phishing websites and links may look similar to real websites. Scammers may try to convince you to download software, saying it’s required to fix problems with your account. They may also ask you to give them your Fluz username and password, personal information, or information for other platforms you may use. They may also try to convey a false sense of urgency to get you to share information that you normally would not. Scammers may also text you with attractive offers for free stocks or other enticing deals. Always be careful when clicking on links in text messages and emails that you don’t expect or recognize—especially if they sound too good to be true. If you want to learn more about how to spot phishing, we recommend reviewing this guidance from the FTC to learn how to recognize and avoid phishing scams.

Protect yourself and your accounts beyond Fluz
Anyone can be a victim of scammers. It's best to be mindful that scammers can target any account, so it’s essential to use strong security practices across all of your online accounts—especially for the email and phone number associated with your Fluz account. We strongly suggest using a complex and unique password, and if available, using Two-Factor Authentication for each online account. A strong password:
- Contains uppercase, lowercase letters, numbers, and special symbols, such as ./@#! %():
- Is at least 10 characters long.
- Doesn't contain memorable keyboard paths.
- Doesn't have your personal information.
- Is unique for each account you have.
