Protect Yourself!

  • The use of the word “FREE” in promotional material is always a major red flag.
  • Use only legitimate wallet apps and browser extensions to avoid phishing scams.
  • Always double-check that everything is in order before you make a transaction. 
  • NEVER click links or attachments from unknown sources. Use Trend Micro Check to browse the web safely and install Trend Micro Maximum Security for an extra layer of protection.
