Social engineering: Social engineering is a type of cybercrime where hackers try to get private information from people by manipulating them psychologically. This is one of the most popular methods hackers use because it’s cheap and effective. They may prey on your emotions and make you feel guilty about something that made you angry, like not doing enough for someone else or not offering enough money for a charity donation. This will make you think twice before going through with what they’re asking for, which is their goal.

Phishing: Phishing is when hackers send malicious emails disguised as legitimate messages to scam users into handing over personal or financial information like credit card numbers, passwords, and bank account details. These fake emails typically look like they come from reputable companies such as banks or large retailers but are in fact completely fake.
