What should I do if I opened a link or provided personal information?
Change your Netflix password to a new, strong and unique one.
Update your password on any websites where you use the same email and password combination.

Forward the message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the steps above.
What are some best practices to keep my information safe?

Hover over any links before you click on them to make sure they lead where they are supposed to lead.
