Tech Tip: Avoid SharePoint Scams

SharePoint is a great tool for file storage and staying connected with your class or work group. Unfortunately, scammers know this, and they have figured out a way to target students and employees at UWM through phishing emails.

Scammers send phishing emails that appear to be a link to content shared via SharePoint. Unfortunately, these emails can look very real, so it is important not to click the link. Instead, you can verify if the shared content is real by logging in to your Microsoft 365 account and using the SharePoint search tool to locate the content.

Please see the list of resources below for more information on using SharePoint and handling phishing emails.
