The Rise of Scam Texts and How to Protect Yourself

It's Not Just a Feeling: Scam Texts Are on the Rise

If you've been feeling like you're receiving more scam text messages than ever, you're not alone—and it's not just a gut feeling. According to a report by AARP and RoboKiller, there has been an alarming 18% increase in unwanted text messages and smishing (SMS phishing) attacks. This rise in intrusive and potentially harmful messaging is more than just an annoyance; it poses a real threat to your digital safety.

What is Smishing?

Smishing is a type of phishing scam that uses text messages to trick people into divulging personal information, clicking on malicious links, or downloading malware onto their devices. And as with email phishing, the effects can range from minor inconvenience to severe financial or personal loss.
