More and more people are falling victim to cybercrimes. That's why Deutsche Telekom is turning the network into your bodyguard...
- Radiators, TV sets, cars – everything is going online in the Internet of Things, making them attractive targets for hackers. Smartphones are a particular focus. Why are they so tempting?
Once they've hacked you, your privacy becomes an all-you-can-eat buffet: they can locate you, eavesdrop on your calls, read your texts and e-mails, read your passwords, browse your photos, access your Facebook profile, and spy on everything else you do with your smartphone. What's more: they can take control of your phone and go shopping at your expense, for example. And since you always carry your smartphone with you and log on to a lot of public WiFi networks, unsecure connections make it especially easy for hackers to attack you. There are already 15 million viruses in the wild for Android smartphones alone, and their numbers continue to explode.
With the expansion of the Internet of Things and the gigantic increase in vulnerable targets, the dangers of cyberspace continue to grow. That's why Deutsche Telekom has come up with a completely new way of helping its customers protect their smartphones against hackers in the mobile network.
