Anti-Phishing Tip #4: Check for Trash Before the Slash!

Verify Before Entering Credentials

THE TRAP:  You are asked to enter your ISD518 login and password on what looks like a standard Worthington Schools District authentication page.


Before submitting any information, make sure the site’s URL begins with “https” and there should be a closed lock icon near the address bar. Check for the site’s security certificate as well.

Example: “https: //” ISD518 authentication pages will never have anything phishy BEFORE the single slash.

If you get a message stating a certain website may contain malicious files, do not open the website. Never download files from suspicious emails or websites.

Remember: Only You can Protect your Password!
