Click Unsubscribe to unsubscribe

Even want to unsubscribe to that newsletter or marketing email, sure you have. Because of this, a popular phishing scam asks the user to do just that. According to Cyware, there is an active phishing campaign asking users to click the link in the phishing email in order to unsubscribe. Clicking on these links could potentially install malware to your device.

Receiving marketing emails can be quite annoying, especially when every place we interact with seems to send them. If you want to unsubscribe from, go to the company website, login, and change your account preferences, when possible. If that is not possible, check the url of the unsubscribe option in the email, verify its legitimacy, and unsubscribe that way. If you are unsure, you could always consider blocking the sending email address or just mark them as spam and let the email go to your spam filter. Most businesses will never send you an email asking you to unsubscribe, so if you receive one, be cautious before you click on any link.
