Anti-phishing refers to security efforts to block phishing attacks.

Phishing is a cybercrime where attackers pose as trusted entities and contact individuals through email, text, or telephone and ask them to share sensitive information.

In a phishing attack, users are lured (phished) into providing account information, password, credit card information, bank account details, or other sensitive data.

In addition, the phishing attempt might include trying to get the target to click on a URL link to download malware.
