Phishing is when someone attempts to gather your personal information by pretending to be a legitimate source. Usually this involves setting up fake websites or sending official-looking emails with return addresses, links and branding that all appear to come from a legitimate source – in this case, Holvi.
Phishing emails usually contain a link to a fake website designed to mislead you into entering your personal details. Once you provide your details, fraudsters can use your information to log in to legitimate sites and take your money.
To keep safe, it’s important that you stay mindful and alert. Look out for suspicious emails asking for your personal information, and always pay attention when logging in to Holvi via your web browser.

Imitation of Holvi’s websites and apps
Holvi monitors the internet to find imitation websites and apps, which are often the first step made by phishers. We then work with the appropriate international authority to get these websites closed down and have any fraudulent apps removed from app stores as fast as possible – sometimes on the same day we find the website or app.
To report phishing attacks, please contact support.
