So, recently I got few clients that interviewed me and wants me to open this link: **Edited for Community Guidelines** and they want me to follow exactly same steps, such as:
**Edited for Community Guidelines**
Should I be worry? Or is this normal in an interview? What is this for? According to them, they only want to check my site.

Thanks for the reply.
But they are both “Upwork Plus Client” and had verified payment. And I also checked that they currently hiring 3 freelancers.
I’m sorry I’m new to UpWork, I’m afraid that reporting them would do something bad for my profile as well?
Reporting a client will not in any way affect your your profile.
This particular job sounds like a scam, but any kind of communication with a client before you have an official Upwork contract in place, must be through Upwork otherwise you and they are breaking the terms of service. So this is all you need to tell a client who wants to contact you away from Upwork. If the client insists, then report them.
