Internet Safety Tips

Chegg Internships is committed to helping users protect their personal information. The following safety tutorial will help you better understand how to navigate the Internet safely.

Phishing

When scammers use false emails to try to get your personal identification and account information, it is called phishing. Be wary of any email that creates a sense of urgency with claims of canceled or frozen accounts, and never click on a link in an email to “update” or provide personal information.  These links can not only lead to fraudulent sites that collect unwary students’ data, but they may download malicious software on your machine. Chegg Internships will never ask you to click on a link to resolve account issues, or download software to access your account or use our services.

We endorse the efforts of the Anti-Phishing Working Group, which has published the following anti-phishing tips:  

  • Be suspicious of any email with urgent requests for personal financial information

  • Phishers typically include upsetting or negative (but false) statements in their emails to get people to react immediately

  • They typically ask for information such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, social security numbers, dates of birth, etc.

  • Don't use the links in an email, instant message, or chat to get to any web page if you suspect the message might not be authentic

  • Instead, call the company on the telephone, or log onto the website directly by typing in the web address in your browser

  • You should only communicate information such as credit card numbers or account information via a secure website or through the telephone

  • Always ensure that you're using a secure website when submitting credit card or other sensitive information via your Web browser
