About Anti-Phishing
Updated at:133 days 10 hours ago

Phishing refers to imposters who claim to be Gate.io staff scam users with malicious links or applications. When users open a malicious phishing link, they will be asked to give away their username, verification codes, fund password and other sensitive information. Scammers will then use that information to steal assets from the victim's account. Imposters send numerous scam emails that look like they are from Gate.io official email accounts.

How to be prepared:

1.Always stay vigilant when you receive:

●deceptive emails that pretend to be from Gate.io ●deceptive URLs that pretend to be Gate.io official website ●false information in text messages with suspicious links that are claimed to help you withdraw funds, verify orders, lower risk levels, video verification, etc ●false links being spread on social media

Please do not open suspicious links shared by strangers or suspicious WeChat articles shared by strangers in WeChat group chats.
