How to protect from hackers attack

16 March, 2021 - By Bhanu

Nowadays Scamming can easily happen in different ways. A hacker gains access to your valuable information using a phishing attack or malware through a public Wi-Fi connection.

Phishing is an easy way for fraud and scam fraudulent attacks that rely on deception in order to steal confidential information from users. Fake calls and texts fall into the category, as do deceitful emails, CEO fraud, and fake advertisements (to name a few). Since phishers impersonate legitimate people, such as government employees or a boss at work, this method of crime is often difficult to identify.

What are they want?


phishing scammers are looking to access sensitive information such as your Social Security number, credit card information, or important passwords. Crimes such as identity or financial theft are often the goal of these kinds of callers.  They could also be looking to get direct access to your computer or phone by pretending they’ve identified an issue with it, hoping to further hack your device. While there’s a diverse range of ways a scammer could trick you, they’re all after a similar goal ultimately.

Identify Fake Phone calls 

 

  • The call is from an unknown number 
  • The caller is asking you to pay for something and requesting your credit card information
  • The caller requests your Social Insurance number 
  • You are being told that there’s a warrant for your arrest 
  • You’re coerced to “decide now” when considering a purchase 
  • The caller is requesting access to your device

How to Tell If A Text is Fraudulent?

 

  • The sender has an unusually long phone number 
  • The text claims that you’ve won a prize, and prompts you to click a link 
  • The message says that one of your accounts, like Gmail for example, has been compromised and asks you to verify your information
  • You’re being alerted that a family member is in trouble, and money is required to help them out of the situation

If this happens to you, delete the message immediately and do not click on any mysterious links as they could give the hacker access to your device.
