The bad guys are always out there, folks. We work hard to stop them, but always be vigilant. We will never ask for your password or other sensitive information via email.

I always type the url's by hand when logging into a service
 
I do but I use PGP encryption for personal and sensitive mails so no one can hack theses password, of course phishing is different.
 
Good to know. Many users in our workplace are being switched to Gmail, we will be making sure everyone's aware.
 
Is phishing really a substantial threat compared to the many (commercial! unregulated!) keylogging trojans?
 
My user name is "username"
My password is "123456"

And, if you believe that, we need to discuss a bridge somewhere but not too far....

+Mayur Bhatia yep but anyone should able to activate it, that's not the case for anymore because it bugs and don't le me to use my account so I'm forced to stay on classic sign-in
 
A lot of people don't realise that some sign-ins will need "application specific passwords" which should be generated by you in your accounts settings page.

For example - I needed an application specific password to use Gmail on my cellphone.
 
There will always be idiots out there looking for mischief. I suggest they enroll themselves in the North Korean space program as test pilots. 
 
Once Google did ask for my password in Google wave. It was meant as a warning: never be this stupid again. I was not amused.
 
Which kinds of the information go fast, criminal or beneficial ? Would it be need us to think of global network ?
