Understanding the potential risks of Internet use and taking pro-active measures can go a long way toward keeping you safe from hackers. Here are some helpful tips you can use, including: handling spam, using safety software, and what Frontier is doing about this issue.
Before you get started, you can find out if what you think is a scam is real or a hoax.
Chances are you have received a virus hoax—a false warning about a computer virus. Typically, the warning arrives in an email or is distributed through a company's internal network. If you get such a message, you can check it out on one of the web sites that tracks hoaxes. Visit Snopes.com or Vmyths.com.
Note: Frontier will never send you an email message requesting that you confirm your email address or password. If you ever receive such a message, it is not from Frontier and should be deleted.
