While it's possible to receive dangerous hyperlinks via social networks or instant messengers, more often than not, digital criminals compromise someone’s account and then send out bad links to their entire contact lists. That explains why the sender of a bad link could be someone you trust such as a friend, colleague or family member. Don’t click on a suspicious link regardless of who it comes from. If you’re unsure whether the contact intended to send you the link to your attention, use an alternate means of communication to reach out to them and verify.
