Just came across a few articles talking about Google's Accelerated Mobile Page (AMP) and how Gmail will start to soon use it. The idea is to make emails feel like an interactive webpage. For example if a site like eBay decided to take advantage of it, a user could see a deal via email, sign in and purchase it all from the same email. 

This is interesting but it seems a lot of people are worried if this could actually be dangerous. Could cyber criminals use this to further trick people into giving over sensitive information? Many people still fall for phishing emails, with the basic click here link , with this update now replacing that link with a snazzier login area.
