What is phishing, and how can you protect yourself? | 1Password
Phishing scams trick people into sending sensitive information like bank details or login credentials to a fake copy of a real site. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to stay safe. We’ll show you how.
What is phishing?
Phishing is a fraudulent attempt to trick people into providing sensitive information, like passwords and credit card numbers by pretending to be someone trustworthy. The scammer uses the claim to legitimacy as bait to catch their victims. For example, an email that claims to be from your bank and asks you to confirm your card details would be a phishing scam.
Phishing isn’t always done via email. Vishing (voice phishing) is an attempt to collect sensitive information over the phone. Smishing (SMS phishing) uses text messaging. But the goal of the attacker is always the same: to get personal information that could be used maliciously.

SMS phishing - a cautionary tale | 1Password
Scams that try to extract personal information via phishing sites, phone calls, or SMS are on the rise. It’s something we covered in detail in What is phishing, and how can you protect yourself?
As someone who works for 1Password, security is a big focus of mine. I’m happy to admit that this job has made me far more paranoid than I used to be, and naturally I use 1Password to make sure all my passwords are strong, unique, and have never been included in any breach. I’ve read our internal security guide many times over, and I took part in a company-wide security training session just recently at our annual company get-together.
You’d think all this preparation would keep me safe from phishing – but last week, I was nearly caught out. If I can be caught out, so can you, and so I write this post in the hope that my experience will encourage others to be cautious.

Have I Been Pwned: Why 1Password?
The only secure password is the one you can't remember
I had my epiphany about the importance of creating secure passwords (and the necessity for a password manager) back in 2011 where I concluded that the only secure password is the one you can’t remember. Back then, I chose 1Password because it was the best fit for my needs; it was user friendly, it had clients for all the devices I used and it made syncing my passwords across them simple. 7 years and hundreds of passwords later, I partnered with them to help people who find themselves in a breach after searching HIBP get themselves into a great password manager.
Today, I use 1Password in all the same ways as I have since 2011, and more. I obviously use it for every single one of my passwords, but I also store other essential information in there such as driver's licence, memberships and credit card data. I fill payment forms on web pages with the latter and use the same keyboard shortcut to fill in identity data such as my phone number and home address. Shortly before the partnership came into being, I subscribed to 1Password families so that my wife and I could share important sensitive information between us in a secure, practical fashion.

773 million records added to Watchtower after Collection #1 Data Breach | 1Password
Earlier today, security researcher Troy Hunt announced the Collection #1 data breach and updated Have I Been Pwned with over 773 million new compromised logins. These are now available in Watchtower so you can check if you’ve been affected by the breach right from 1Password.

What is the Collection #1 data breach?
Collection #1 consists of over 1 billion username and password combinations, taken from individual data breaches on thousands of different websites. The data has been circulating on the dark web and hacker forums, and is the single largest breach to ever be added to Have I Been Pwned and Watchtower.

Collection #1 contains:

1,160,253,228 unique combinations of email address and password
773,138,449 unique email addresses
21,222,975 unique passwords
Around 140 million email addresses in this breach had never appeared in Have I Been Pwned before.

Stay Efficient and Organized with a Password Manager | The Startup Finance Blog
Think about what would happen if someone could guess all your passwords. They’d get at your email, they’d be able to order things from Amazon on your credit card, they’d have access to your contacts and calendars, and even to your bank accounts.
Most Commonly Used Passwords
For many people, passwords are an afterthought. The most commonly used passwords are things like 123456, password, qwerty, letmein, iloveyou, and starwars. And 4 percent of people – that’s one out of every twenty-five of your friends and co-workers – used 123456 to protect accounts. And others still leave passwords on sticky notes on their monitor or desk.
With the many data breaches that have exposed peoples’ email addresses, user names, and passwords, all available to hackers willing to spend a few bucks, it is increasingly foolish to use a simple password. But the downside of this is that it is hard to remember a password like DqAJt4acfJ3owB; it’s easier to remember your pet’s name or the name of your favorite Game of Thrones character or sports team.
