Dangerous Things People Do
There are many things we do regularly which put our smartphones at risk. I will talk about some of those things in this paragraph.
The first one is sharing our personal details to fraudster who pose to be calling from your bank.
Many people have suffered from this; this fraudster might sound convincing enough to make you believe you are actually talking with someone from your bank.
The solution here is to make sure that you do not disclose any detail or whatever to anyone over the phone, if there is any problem go to the bank and speak with the bankers physically.
Protect Your Bubble’s data confirms that 27% of identity theft is caused from phone related and banking fraud cases.
Do make sure you do not reveal any of your sensitive information to a strange person that calls you, regardless of what they say or how convincing they sound, confirm from your bank first.
