Malware Targeting Banking Apps on Android
March 2016Share This Story
There has been a lot of press around malware viruses targeting Android Banking Apps in New Zealand and Australia, fortunately Beyond Bank has not been affected by these attacks. Beyond Bank has tools in place to protect customers, but it is impossible to protect against all threats. Therefore, it is important that our members remain vigilant.
Here are a few ways to help you protect the security of you device and information:
- Only ever download Apps from the Google Play Store or the App Store. Never download an app from an unknown website
- Never 'Jailbreak' your device as this voids built in security features.
- Avoid phishing attacks by not clicking links in any email or SMS from an unknown source
- Always make sure your virus protection is up to date.
