The "Squarespace Invalid Identity" Phishing Scam

The Squarespace Invalid Identity Phishing Scam

Squarespace customers who have received fake "Squarespace Invalid Identity" emails like the one below, which claim a restriction has been placed on their accounts because they are due for verification, are asked not to click on the links in them. This is because we have noticed that scammers are currently sending out fake Squarespace emails which have links that go to phishing websites that steal online account usernames and passwords.

Squarespace customers should always go directly to and sign into their accounts from there. If there is something that they need to do, they will be notified after signing in.
