I mistakenly clicked on a phishing link received in a PM. Did nothing after that and just closed the redirected page. Is my account at danger in any way?

PM sender: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=369271

PM text...

You are safe as long as you have not hit the submit button.
You are safe if you have typed the credentials but did not hit the submit button/link.
Although, if the form submission enabled for left focus of the text box for password field then you are in danger.

If it sounds too complicated then just change the password to a new one. This will help: https://passwordsgenerator.net

PS: Did you report the PM? If not then report the scammer.

In addition to the suggestion given above, you should also do a scan in case some malicious program got installed after clicking that link. You can read the procedure to do that online.

Doesn't look like the link contains malware other than going to a phishing site.

Be careful out there.

I hope that you have also reported that member sending the phishing links. Such members should be banned asap to prevent further damage. A question for staff :  Is it possible to delete or reverse these messages once such a case is discovered on mass scale ?

They already are banned. https://bpip.org/profile.aspx?p=MissouriMiner

The date on that PM is from June and it looks like they got banned soon after so other people must have already reported it.

I don't think it is possible to reverse PMs but limiting the damage is why there are PM limits in place so it is not easy to send them out in bulk.
