Last example is bad advice
The last example in the quiz states "you should click the applications link to ensure any additional information seems correct"....that is 100% WRONG - sorry google! Shame on you, that is awful...

It's not all that easy
I think we need a lot more than quizzes to educate people on what exactly and attack on their security systems is going to look like. Honestly at the rate that these emails and hacks are coming out you would think that people would know better, but there are still plenty of people who are swindled every day!

Safety needs measures
Other platforms ought to learn a thing or two from the security experts so as to prevent data breaches in their firms as well. It usually starts small but a simple hack could cause an entire site to shut down for good. Following the footsteps of Google with their 2-factors authentication would mean a much more tedious step for users but at the end of the day, they would appreciate their confidential data being kept safe.

Great first step
I like the progress that Google is making to train users on potential nefarious actions. I'm going to take this myself and if it turns out to be effective I'm going to try and echo it through the security community.
