RBC Royal customers who have received messages claiming that they need to do some activity on their accounts, should always go directly to http://www.rbcroyalbank.com/ and sign into their accounts. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of security updates, notifications and other important notifications. So, there is no need to click on a link in an email message, which may go to a phishing or malicious website.
Also, RBC Royal customers who have already been tricked by the phishing messages, are asked to change their passwords and contact RBC Royal immediately, before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently by cyber criminals.
