Safeguard your Smart phone against Frauds in Digital payment systems

The usage of Mobile Phone for doing Banking transactions is increasing rapidly. With convenience and mobility of mobile phones, risks are also increasing. Fraudsters cheat the innocent mobile users using various tricks. A new technique has been used by the fraudsters which is given below: 

  • Fraudster would lure the victim on some pretext to download remote access Apps like ‘ANYDESK’ from Playstore or appstore and install the same.
  • The fraudster would somehow get the appcode generated at the time of installation from the user.
  • He would ask the victim to grant certain permissions which are similar to what are required while using other apps. Post this, fraudster will gain access to victim's device to access all other apps.
  • Now fraudster could steal the banking credentials, SMS like OTP, sensitive data and could carry out transactions through the mobile app already installed on the customer's device.
  • If Mobile banking/ Mobile wallet/ UPI applications are installed on the phone, the fraudster will use these Apps and steal the balance in the accounts. 

 Hence you are advised as follows: 

  • Please do not use any remote access apps like ANYDESK in your mobile
  • Please do not share the credentials like Passcode, OTP to anybody even if the caller informs that he is calling from the Bank. Bank will not seek such details.

The following general precautions may be followed to safeguard your smart phone: 

  • Use password/Pattern lock to protect your smart phone.
  • Avoid downloading/installing unknown application without verifying the genuineness (Go to Settings -> Security -> Turnoff "Allow Installation of apps from Unknown sources").
  • Avoid granting all/excessive permissions to applications. Be cautious before granting permission to access SMS/files/camera or any sensitive data.
  • Keep your Antivirus software up-to-date.
  • Please do not click any malicious link from SMS/Email or any other means.
  • Please avoid using public Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth.
  • Please do not jailbreak or root your phone.  
  • Please Keep OS of your Mobile up to date
