Beware of "Squarespace Website Auto-renew" Scams

Squarespace customers who have received fake "auto-renew" emails like the one below, which claim their websites are set to auto-renew, 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.

Please continue below.

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