  • Think before you click. Never click suspicious links — even if they come from a friend or a company you know. This includes links sent on rideNAMA (ex: in a chat or post) and links sent in emails. If one of your friends clicks on spam by accident, that link might be sent to all of their rideNAMA friends. Remember to never re-enter your rideNAMA password or download something (ex: a .exe file) if you aren’t sure what it is.
