There are at least two versions of a phishing email going around at the moment which seemingly allow you to apply for a digital COVID passport.
Obvious clues are poor English and incorrect spelling:
“We will ask you a few personal information about yourself and show you how to get your copy. The passport will allow you to travel safetly and freely around the world without having to self-isolate.”
A less obvious clue is that the “Get Digital Passport” button links to a URL which is definitely NOT an NHS one.
If you do click on the button, you’ll be asked for various personal details and a payment.
- The NHS will never contact you to ask for payment details to obtain the NHS COVID pass. You can view your double vaccination status freely on the NHS app or apply for an NHS COVID pass free of charge online here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-pass/
