I got an email from ankiweb asking me to verify my email address.
I’ve been using anki for a few years and have never been asked to verify my email.
I was wondering if this was a a fishing attempt?
I know I associated the question with not the most accurate category , but it was the closest one.
If you are posting here on this new forum, it means that you just did created a new account on the new forum, then, the email you are receiving should be valid.
To be sure you are not being conned:
- Do not click on the link at the email,
- Copy it the link to and assure it has the following format:
- If the link has the format above, copy and paste it into your browser and access url.
- If the link does not start with
https://forums.ankiweb.net/... then, it is a fishing attempt and you should report the email as a phishing scam.
I think Evandro’s thinking of something else - please see https://faqs.ankiweb.net/email-verification.html
I just got two emails regarding activation of a “child Anki account” linked to my address that strike me as obviously fraudulent and that link to anki.com addresses. Where can I report this as a phishing scam?
Email providers usually have an option for
Phishing Scam report
You can also report it directly to
Anti-Phishing Working Group:
For what it’s worth, this sounds more like someone mistyping their email address into the defunct robotics company’s website than a phishing scam.
