BBM Warns of Phishing Scams

BlackBerry has always been known for their world-class security. However, there are always people trying to do the “unthinkable” and break through. Today, BlackBerry has pushed out a notification through BBM stating that people are “phishing” through the popular app. The company is warning people that they would never ask you for your passwords or email address. Have a look at the screenshot from my Priv.


Personally, I have not seen one of these messages yet. But am always weary whenever I see emails with just links in them or well-constructed fakes such as from my bank. Apparently now we have to worry about BBM messages as well. Let’s hope BlackBerry is able to crack down on these better than the email servers have been able to.

Have you seen any of these phishing attempts? Let us know in comments below!
