If you think you have compromised your Geneseo username and password through a phishing email, change your password immediately.
A phishing website or message tries to trick you into revealing personal information by appearing to be from a legitimate source, such as a bank, social network, or Geneseo. If you receive a suspicious message, do not provide the information requested. Learn more on how to not get reeled in by phishing.
- Check if a phishing alert is posted to the Phish Bowl.
- If there is not a recent warning on the Phish Bowl, report the phishing in Gmail. To do so click 3 dots next to the reply arrow and select “Report phishing.”
- If you have a specific question about the phishing email, you can also report it to the Help Desk by forwarding it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most importantly, never reply to suspicious emails, tweets, or posts with your personal or financial information. Also, don’t fill out forms or sign-in screens that link from these messages.
