If you receive an email or someone claiming to be from Emirates calls and asks for your account name and password, then it’s likely you have been the target of a scam.
Scammers use any means to obtain your personal information including but not limited to fake emails, pop-up ads, texts and instant messages, and even phone calls. They will try to trick you into sharing personal information, such as your Skywards ID password or credit card information. Here are some helpful tips on how you can protect your account and avoid scams.
Never share your Skywards ID password with anyone. Emirates will never ask you for this as part of our validation process or when providing support. If you believe that your Skywards ID has been compromised, we encourage you to change your password immediately.
Scammers are able to spoof phone numbers and may use a combination of flattery and threats to pressure you into giving them information and/or money. We encourage you to verify the caller's identity at all times before providing any personal information. If you receive an unsolicited call from someone claiming to be from Emirates, or if in any doubt about the call, please hang up and contact us directly.
Scammers also try to copy email and text messages including the unauthorized use of corporate logos and formats from legitimate companies in order to trick you into sharing your personal information and passwords. We recommend our customers do not follow links or open attachments in suspicious or unsolicited messages. Should you need to change or update your personal information, contact us directly.

Messages which have been legitimately sent by the Emirates CyberSecurity team are always signed with our PGP key. We encourage our customers to verify the signature in order to ensure that any document received has indeed been written by our staff and has not been subject to any changes.
When sending sensitive security information by email, we encourage our customers to encrypt it.
Are you concerned that an unauthorized person might have access to your Skywards ID? These steps can help you find out and regain control of your account.
Because our customers can use their Skywards ID for Emirates and its partner products and services, we encourage you to ensure that your Skywards account is as secure as possible. We recommend that our customers do not share password information with anyone. If someone you don’t know or don’t trust can sign in with your Skywards account, your account is not secure.
Here are some reasons why the Skywards account you are using may not be secure:
If any of the above sounds familiar , your account may be compromised and we recommend you take the following steps as soon as possible to reset your password and review your account information.
Your Skywards account might be compromised if you receive an account notification from Emirates Skywards for a change that you did not make, or if you do not recognize changes to account details. For example:
If you receive an email that you are not sure is valid or you think may be a fraudulent "phishing" email, here are some helpful tips that can help you determine its legitimacy.
If you believe that your Skywards account has been compromised, you can use these steps to gain control of it and review your account information:
If you have completed the steps above but still have reason to believe your account is still compromised, you can contact the Emirates contact center.
