The Hover Over (Traditional Computers)
What it is: The process of hovering your mouse pointer, or cursor, over a link.
What it does: Reveals the full URL of links that are embedded in text, logos, and other icons.
What it accomplishes Helps you identify links that have been manipulated by cybercriminals. For example, a button that says “log into account” might direct you to a malicious website, but you wouldn’t know that without hovering.
