Everyone with a Netflix account needs to be aware of a new scam targeting subscribers!

According to a cybersecurity firm, subscribers are receiving emails telling them to update their credit card info and social security number.

The email resembles the Netflix log in page. If you receive an email like this, do not click on any links or provide personal and billing information.

Netflix is aware that these types of scams occur and posted some suggestions on its site to help customers keep their account secure:

• Use a password unique to Netflix and change it periodically
• Be aware of possible phishing attempts
• Keep your computer safe with security software
• Report fraudulent or suspicious activity
• Sign out of unused devices
• Report security flaws to Netflix
