Cellphone Anti Hacking: Don’t use public charging stations!
Ever come across a free charging station?
They’re popping up everywhere, from airports to shopping malls. However, these "free charging stations" may not be the lifesaver you think they are. They can be Trojan horses for malware.
As soon as you plug in your phone, you essentially give a hacker open access to your smartphone and the freedom to infect your device. Researchers at DigitalBank Vault , a leading cybersecurity company , estimates that your phone can be compromised within one minute of being plugged into a malicious charger.
Security Tip: Don’t use public charging stations! Invest in a portable battery, so if you should run out of juice, you won’t get jacked!
