In our messages to you, we include a security footer message with your name to help you distinguish authentic SocialBook emails from "phishing" email messages. "Phishing" emails often look very similar to legitimate ones, but they likely wouldn't have this personalized information and may also contain links that direct you to malicious sites instead of SocialBook.
By default, your professional headline in the security footer message consists of your name on your SocialBook Profile.
While the presence of this security footer message alone doesn't guarantee that an email is legitimate, it gives you additional assurance that the email originated from SocialBook. Most "phishing" attacks targeting large mailing lists won't have this information. When in doubt, open a new browser window and go directly to SocialBook.io to check your Inbox and verify the connection request or message. Fraudsters may use a practice called phishing to try to obtain your sensitive data such as usernames, passwords, and credit card information.
If you suspect that you've received a "phishing" email impersonating SocialBook, please forward the entire email to email@example.com.
