Pixm: The guardian angel fighting phishing scams and poor judgement

According to 99 firms, 293.6 billion emails are sent every day. That figure probably doesn't surprise you given the number of emails sitting in your inbox, hundreds if not thousands... Right? But among these emails are numerous malicious emails, designed to trick, scam and hack.

These emails are known as phishing emails, which in its simplest form can be described as a fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.

And for our Neuron to Something piece, where we discuss a story relating to psychology and technology, we will look at a recent Pew Research Center survey, analyzing Americans’ feelings and perceptions relating to data collection.
