Question: Is this email really from Apple?

I’ve been using my fingerprint for App store. It was only about 2 days ago that Appstore asked for my password. I’ve already forgotten it and have no record of it anywhere so I just reset my password via iphone, which also reflected when I turned on my macbook. I have not encountered any login errors since then but earlier today I received an email from “Apple.” (Please note the dot after the name). I looked back at the previous Apple emails and it never contained the dot. Plus, one or two sentences seem a little off, like something wrong with the sentence construction or grammar. So this is a little dubious to me. Is it really from Apple???

Answer:

No. Not Apple.


A genuine message from Apple will always address you by your name or the name they know you by … and come from an address that ends @apple.com. Never respond to a mail that does not meet both of the conditions above or indeed, that you feel suspicious about.


Send a copy of the email (as an attachment) to Apple at …. Reportphishing@apple.com


By the way, I asked the hosts to remove your email address. It is unwise to publish such info.

Thanks for your reply..and also for the image report. Honestly, I forgot that the photo I attached contained personal information. I’m usually careful in posting things like that but I guess I got a little bit stressed by the email I received. Good day to you!
