Email technology is used all over the world to share messages and files with family, friends, and business associates. While it’s true that the use of emails makes the world a smaller place and has made it easier for people to stay connected, the service also has its fair share of drawbacks. Email spoofing is a common practice that highlights the security pitfalls of email technology. This article will give you a brief summary of what is email spoofing and what you can do to protect yourself against it. If you want a deeper understanding of the risks of email spoofing you can call the aol phone number and speak to a professional email expert.

How does email spoofing affect AOL?

The main goal behind email spoofing is to deceive the user. Email spoofing involves the forgery or fabrication of the email header so as to hide the true source of the email. Spammers use the tactic of email spoofing to steal sensitive data from a user by making them think the email is coming from a trusted source or contact. For example, spammers or hackers may create a spoofed email, that seems like it is coming from your bank, asking you to provide your credit card number. The minute you receive an email asking for sensitive data, you should immediately be wary and double-check the user details.

What are the signs of a spoofed account?

Since spoofed emails will probably have a deceptive email header, it is important to recognize which email are genuine and which are not. You can refer to the points below to check your emails and keep a lookout for email spoofing:

·         Open the email source code and check the IP address.

·         Check the email signature and other contact details of the sender.

·         Review the Sender Policy Framework and check the email ‘soft-failed.’

·         Check your inbox and see if your AOL contacts are replying to message you did not send

If you notice anything suspicious about the email you should not click any of the links in the message.

Steps to prevent email spoofing on your AOL account

Since there are no guaranteed safeguards to stop spoofing completely, AOL users can refer to the steps below to protect against email spoofing:

·         Step 1: Activate a strong spam filter for your AOL email account.

·         Step 2: Use a priority inbox tool to filter important messages.

·         Step 3: Go online to check how you can track IP addresses on emails.

·         Step 4: Do not download email attachments from unknown senders.

·         Step 5: Check the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record for your AOL emails.

Apart from the steps given above, AOL itself takes several precautions to protect users against email spoofing. You can call the aol customer service number and speak to a qualified email technician to learn more about email spoofing and what can be done to avoid it.
