QR Code Phishing Attacks Have Surged

by: Align

With QR Code phishing attacks on the rise, find out what you need to do to
safeguard your information.

Recently, QR code phishing attacks have surged. These emails may appear genuine but contact QR codes that, when scanned, lead to fake Microsoft sign-in pages. 

What Should You Do?
  • For your safety, Align Cybersecurity asks that you refrain from scanning any QR codes found in emails, especially from unknown sources.
  • If you have concerns about an email's legitimacy, use the "Report Message" button in Outlook to promptly notify the Align Cybersecurity Team. 


Do you have further other cybersecurity concerns? 

If so, we advise you to contact the Align Managed Services team at or via phone at +1 855-IT-ALIGN (1-855-482-5446)

Thank you,

The Align Team
