This online quiz, created and powered by Cisco, is a fun way to test your basic cybersecurity knowledge and see whether you can distinguish a real website from a phishing attempt. Phishing is an online attack, launched as an attempt to steal user data, and looking like it has been launched from an official source. However, certain cues such as incorrect language or a strange link (URL) can alert prospective victims and prevent a phishing attack from succeeding.

Through a series of photos, users can test their knowledge on how official websites look, simultaneously improving their digital literacy and critical thinking skills. This quiz is suitable for older people, children, those with no understanding of digital technologies, and those who simply want to test their digital knowledge and preparedness to detect phishing attempts.
