Maybe double-check that HMRC email? UK taxman remains a fave among the phisherfolk

Dear El Reg:

Clarification needed. Yesterday I used my Government Gateway ID (issued in 2018) in an online session with HMRC. The quote above MIGHT seem to imply that my online session yesterday could have been completely fraudulent.

So....are Government Gateway IDs still valid or not. If not, then I'm wondering why HMRC seems still to use them.

Confused....need clarification!
