A phishing email is an email scam, designed to look like a legitimate message. Phishing emails are used to trick users into sharing personal passwords or financial information by clicking on a link or inadvertently downloading malware.
Watch for these clues that a message in your inbox might be a phishing email:
If you're ever unsure whether or not you've received a phishing email, don't click on any links or provide any information. Contact the Technology Help Desk at [email protected] or x1000.
If you've shared your password, change it immediately at https://norsekey.luther.edu
Mobile devices weren't designed to be left out in cold weather. Glass screens can crack, and phones can automatically shut off if it's too cold. Battery performance will deteriorate in cold weather as well.
If you have to leave a device in your car, turn it completely off instead of just putting it to sleep — it'll be able to withstand colder temps. Also, allow time for your device to warm up to room temperature before turning it on.
