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:
Metro Bank’ customers should go directly to https://www.metrobankonline.co.uk/ to sign into their accounts or use Metro Bank's mobile app. Once they have signed in, if there is something wrong with their accounts will be notified.

Recipients of the phishing Metro Bank email who have clicked on the link and have attempted to sign into the phishing website with their account’ credentials should immediately change their passwords and contact Metro Bank Bank for help.
