People have begun to be drawn in by an email or text offering them a ‘free pass’ to Netflix, but unfortunately this is not genuine.
While streaming services are offering some content for free during the coronavirus outbreak, clicking the link sent in such a message is not a good idea.
Netflix has nothing to do with the ‘offer’ stated, and it is most likely a phishing scam. The URL contains the name Netflix, but the site is not genuine.
The messages state: ‘Due to the CoronaVirus pandemic worldwide, Netflix is giving some free pass for their platform during the period of isolation. Run on the site cause it will end quick!’
The malicious site asks people to complete a survey to ‘claim a free pass’, then send the link to 10 others via WhatsApp in order to ‘activate’ it.
