iCloud pop up scam

Postby Always Sunny » Oct 13th, 2017, 7:20 pm

I'm newer to the Apple world, so this came as a surprise to me on my Facebook feed today (a link to an article, which I unfortunately didn't save).

Anyways, I'd been getting this pop up (this is a generic example, not gonna post my own info) a few times a day to enter my iCloud password. I'm due to upgrade my IOS so I assumed it had to do with that, but I'm a lazy *bleep* and keep putting it off. Turns out that procrastination helped, because it's a phishing scam.

If you're able to hit the home button and the pop up goes away, then it's a fake pop up.

If you knew that already, please disregard :D Just wanted to pass it in to the less Apple savvy type like myself.
