NBN Co is reminding Australians to be extra vigilant about their online security

NBN Co is reminding Australians to be extra vigilant about their online security, with a marked increase in predatory scammers impersonating representatives of essential service providers in order to steal personal details and commit fraud.

With Australians working, studying, shopping and socialising online during the COVID-19 crisis, scammers are increasing their efforts to steal people’s personal or financial details. Similarly, scammers are using people’s reliance on connectivity at this time to mislead people into thinking that their nbn service will be disconnected if they don’t provide a ‘technician’ with online access to their computer.

It is important to not click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails and never respond to unsolicited messages. This is even more important for all of us that are working from home, as scammers are on the hunt for ways to get access and disrupt home and corporate networks.
