Sometimes the solution to complicated problems with smartphones does not go through the manufacturers, but through the operators. This is exactly what happened with Vodafone. This operator is launching a very innovative and important service. In fact, Vodafone solves a big problem of Android smartphones! I’m talking about SMS with threats and not only that reach several users. Whether with fake notifications from carriers, banks or many other services.
Vodafone solves big problem of Android smartphones!
Almost everyone has received fake text messages that later infect our smartphone. Especially if we click on the links there. In fact, 2021 was a record year for them and the use of different methods stands out.
Many of the messages that reach users are really sophisticated and lead users to very well made websites. This is exactly why these types of attacks have been so successful. But now it looks like Vodafone is going to put an end to this once and for all. In fact, there is a system that is already operational in England and is expected to reach all parts of the world soon.
The new system has even managed to significantly reduce these messages during the Christmas period. There was 76% less dangerous news in December compared to May! However, 45 million text messages have been blocked since August.
This is due to a kind of message firewall.
In addition to blocking messages, Vodafone claims it has also facilitated access to the 7726 service in the UK, which allows these scams to be reported so they can be blocked more quickly. In addition, it is also possible to report dangerous machinations with a simple push of a button.
This is excellent news, as scam attempts via messages continue to happen. Now we just have to wait for it to reach all countries.
