Malicious email.

Not only can you see the full URL, if you hover over it, its exactly as shown. Also, if your name's in the email, that adds credibility.

Next Question.

If your name's on the email and the actual Netflix URL is there, that's a good sign— it's good to hover the link and check too.

Social post.

Social scam.

Incorrect.

You fell for it! 1. Be careful when things are advertised as free 2. NEVER trust a link that is asking you to modify the URL.

Spot on! No matter how innocent it seems, if you are asked to modify a URL, it can mean that Facebook already knows it's a bad URL.

Next Question.

8 of 8: Social post or social scam?

Social post.
