A friend (who thinks she’s still on iOS 13) says she accidentally clicked on one of the fake FedEx “delivery” texts.
She saw it was sending her to a “prize type site” and closed everything.
From what I’ve read/Googled, the risk seems to be a phishing scheme and one is only in trouble if they play-along and enter credit card data, etc.
Is the iOS text app (and presumably Safari on iOS) locked down enough to keep strange scripts out?
I used to know guys who enjoyed exploring those things on “disposable” computers or ones that they did no real work on/kept free of account and personal data. I am not one of those guys!
She’s resetting a few passwords from other devices and I’m going to encourage her to update her iOS to the latest version.
She told me this all via iOS messaging and I have not gotten any strange texts or emails with “attachments” from her, etc. … Just checked FB, no “I think this is you in this video” messages(!).
Any other thoughts/recommendations for her?
