In recent weeks we have noticed many phishing attempts via pop-ups. A pop-up is one of those little windows that pop up when you go to certain websites. They will show a competition: you can win a smartphone or a trip. All you have to do is fill out your data or take a short survey. The scammers abuse the name of well-known companies such as Telenet, Base or Proximus. Don’t take part! Don't fill in your details, and close the pop-up.
Are you tired of seeing these annoying pop-ups appear?
- Block pop-ups in your browser.
- You can download an extension for your browser for extra security (Add-on)
- Install a browser on your smartphone that is explicitly designed to block pop-ups such as https://adblockbrowser.org/. There are also other apps such as AdGuard and AdBlock.
