If you only opened the link but did not enter anything then you can probably just close the link and forget it. In opening the link you may have notified the spanners they successfully reached your address but if you didn't enter anything then that's all they got (you may possibly receive more spam). If you entered information then:

Hi there, hassam2525.


It appears that you've opened an email that contained a suspicious link and you're wondering what you need to do. I'm happy to help.


I see that you got to the Apple Support Communities from article: Avoid phishing emails, fake ‘virus‘ alerts, phony support calls, and other scams -- This article provides the best information on how to avoid these scams, and how to report them if you receive one. If you believe that your Apple ID has been compromised, change your password as soon as possible.

Protect your Apple ID

Never share your Apple ID password or temporary verification codes with anyone. Apple will never ask you for this information to provide support.

Use two-factor authentication to protect your Apple ID. Learn more about security and your Apple ID.

If you believe that your Apple ID has been compromised, change your password immediately.


Take care!
