How to detect DocuSign-themed phishing attempts
A few simple techniques can help you spot the difference between a spoofed DocuSign email and the real thing:
- Don’t open unknown or suspicious attachments, or click links—DocuSign will never ask you to open a PDF, office document or zip file in an email.
- Hover over all embedded links: URLs to view or sign DocuSign documents contain “docusign.net/” and always start with https.
- Access your documents directly from www.docusign.co.uk by entering the unique security code, which is included at the bottom of every DocuSign email.
- Report suspicious DocuSign-themed emails to your internal IT/security team and to firstname.lastname@example.org.
