A screenshot of an email Junk inbox folder. The highlighted email is supposedly from UPS with a subject line of “you have (1) package waiting for delivery — — 04–18–2024.” The email address and certain elements of the email have visual cues that suggest it is a phishing attempt or spam, such as the random-looking sender’s email address.

Did you know that Google has been using AI for spam detection since 2019? It’s true, and back then they said AI was helping them block 100 million extra spam messages every day. If you are a Gmail user, you might have just spit out your coffee, for which I apologize.
