Protecting Your Employer Account from Phishing Attempts 

Updated June 24, 2020

Given that your Dice Employer Account grants you access to millions of candidate profiles as well as database views your company has paid for, it is important that you keep your account safe.  

And let’s face it … there are a lot of ways data can be stolen and compromised online. 

Here are important guidelines for account security: 

  1. Never share your account login ID and password. Doing so puts your account at risk for unauthorized usage and create a security risk for you, your company and our candidates. 
     

  1. Beware of “Phishing” attempts impersonating people or companies you know or that seem “official”. These have become very sophisticated over the years and can truly resemble trusted partners.  
     
    Phishing is a type of social engineering attack often used to steal user data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, dupes a victim into opening an email, instant message, or text message. The recipient is then tricked into clicking a malicious link, which can lead to the installation of malware, the freezing of the system as part of a ransomware attack or the revealing of sensitive information. 
     
    Unless you request a new password for your account, please know that Dice will never ask you to provide your login and password via an email. If you do request a password reset, that email will always come from a @dice.com email address. 
     

  1. Log out of your account when not at your computer. It is unwise to leave your computer unlocked when you step away from your desk – even for a moment. 
     

  1. Contact Client Support if you think there is suspicious activity surrounding your account. We are always available to help answer any questions about your account. Please email us at support@dice.com.
