Hello Everyone!

I hope all is well. Today I received an e-mail claiming they are from the Shopify Security Team. This is what is says. I don't know weather to do what it is asking because I am not sure if it is real. Any help for me please?

That feels off to me. I would suggest talking to Shopify Support directly.

I jump on these forums to help and share some insights. Not looking to be hired, and not looking for work.

Don't hand out staff invites or give admin password to forum members unless absolutely needed. In most cases the help you need can be handled without that.

Denis - without more info it would be hard to know for sure. If there's any doubt contact the Shopify support team directly.

Has anyone gotten a response regarding this concern?  I have received the same suspicious email from "The Shopify Security Team".  I left a detailed message, seeking advice at  https://help.shopify.com/questions. No reply yet.  I am new to Shopify & would greatly appreciate any information or recommendations.

Hello!

This is Leon from the Support team at Shopify. 

If you receive an email that appears to be from Shopify requesting you click-through to a page that is not hosted on Shopify.com or download an attachment to your device please contact support to verify it's legitimacy. The email described above sounds a lot like a phishing email discovered recently, but I would need to look at it to be sure. If you have received an apparent phishing email, please download and send the email as an attachment to safety@shopify.com. This will help our team investigate the source of the phishing emails. 

If you have clicked a link or downloaded an attachment from a phishing email please contact support as soon as possible so we can take action to further protect your account from unauthorized access.  

I highly recommend you secure your account with Two-Factor Authentication to further protect your account now and in the future. Our guide on this topic has step-by-step instructions for setting up this feature in your account. 

I hope this helps!

Cheers,

Leon
