Think before you click—Quick steps
Verify the sender is who you think it is.
How: Double-click or tap the sender’s name at the top of the email to view the real email address. Also, you can hover without clicking the name, to reveal the real email address.
If you can't verify the sender, do not click at all.
How: If the email refers to a known website, type that website address into a new browser window instead and check for information there.
