It is important for internet users to remember that they should never click on a link to sign into their online accounts, especially links in email messages. The safest way to sign into their online accounts is to go directly to their online account providers’ websites, by typing the addresses of the websites in their web browsers or using a popular search engine to find the websites.

For example:
Barclays’ customers should type: “http://www.barclays.co.uk/” in their web browsers or search for “Barclays Bank” using a popular search engine.

Recipients of the phishing Barclay email, who have clicked on the link and have attempted to sign into the phishing website with their accounts’ credentials, should change their passwords and contact Barclay Bank immediately.
