I’m pretty sure one of my neighbors hasn’t left the house since the start of the pandemic. They quarantine hard! But those delivery trucks show up like clockwork every day. Albertsons, Sprouts, Gelsons, Target…clearly this family is still eating well.
They aren’t alone. Grocery delivery services have surged during the COVID-19 quarantine. These delivery services help maintain social distancing, lower the number of shoppers in each store, and allow high-risk shoppers to safely buy items from home.
But as usual the bad guys have sniffed out a new opportunity to trick people. The popularity of these delivery services has caught their attention. Hackers are now spoofing supermarkets that offer delivery services in hopes of stealing your personal information. Let’s not even talk about the despicable nature of targeting the people that are the most vulnerable.
It starts with a phishing email that urges you to log in to your supermarket’s website using the link provided. Clicking the link takes you to a fake login page for your local supermarket. The page asks you to select your email provider (Gmail, Apple, and so on) and then log in to connect your account.
Don’t fall for it!
Connecting your account actually delivers your email credentials to the bad guys.
Don’t forget to use proper email security measures:
