Safeguarding your Bing Ads login credentials from getting phished

Recently, there has been an increased incidence of phishing targeting Bing Ads using Google search. The top sponsored result on the Google search results page for queries such as {Bing ads}, {Bing ads login}, {Bing ads sign in} directs unsuspecting users to a look-alike Bing Ads login landing page.
