Right, so I recieved a phishing email which had a link, however no attachment. I knew it was a phishing email but because my iPhone touchscreen is messed up I unfortunately opened it via Safari. At the time this outlook account was also logged in to another computer elsewhere in the house. The link weirdly opened the YouTube homepage which I found very strange as the link address was very much different. I'm panicking at the moment that someone may have access to my IP address, be able to send malware through my WIFI or have sensitive information. Does anybody have an idea as to the level of threat and actions I should take from here?

I've forwarded this to the company they were posing as who has an email for phishing emails and ran Malwarebytes and McAfee which hasn't found anything on my windows PC. I've also changed the email password. Pretty worried guys!
