First of all, What is phishing? Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
The main place you will see this is in emails or when you type the website address wrong by accident.
One of the best ways to avoid this is to not click on the link provided in an email but to go to the website yourself, you also want to check the URL to the website before you enter any sensitive information such as a username and password.
This will help protect you from identity theft and protect your accounts from getting stolen.
