Follow this simple 3 golden rules in everyday of your cyber life to prevent spam.

  • Think twice when subscribing to newsletters and feeds. Only subscribe when you are confident that the site will keep your personal information safe. Check the URL of the sites before submitting your email address because spammers will use templates (replicas) of popular websites to trap you.
  • Don't click on the "Unsubscribe" in the spam mails. What you think is if you unsubscribe then you don't receive emails from them. But there is evil trick used by spammers here. Whenever you unsubscribe from spam mails, spammer will confirm that you are reading spam mails and hence will forward your email ID to other spammers. Spam will increase when you try to decrease.
