Scammers have managed to get more clever into tricking you out of your tokens. Fake websites are one way to do this. Below we'll take imToken as an example and explain how you can tell if a website is legit.
Three steps to check if a website is legit
- Make sure that the domain name you entered in the browser is: https://token.im/
Note: Be sure to use HTTPS instead of HTTP.
- Make sure there is a security icon such as 🔒 or 🛡 in front of the domain name.
- Click the security icon, the website is real and safe if the pop-up shows “Connection is secure”. Otherwise, the website is fake and you can contact us via email@example.com. We’ll get you the help you need.
Before downloading imToken, please make sure you have completed the three steps.
