You’ve seen it on the news: Data theft and cybercrime are at an all-time high. Computer viruses, malware, and identity theft lead to loss of privacy, money, and peace of mind. Cybercriminals can hack your personal data and other valuable information using any number of devious means: through unsecured computer or mobile-device networks, using hidden card skimmers and RFID readers, and by sending phishing emails and texts.
Unfortunately it doesn’t end there. Cybercrooks are always trying to stay ahead of the game, continuing to innovate and invent ways to steal unsuspecting peoples’ data.
At Eagle Print, we like to educate our customers about important strategies to stay safe in an increasingly hostile digital world.
According to this recent article on cybersecurity, the FBI has seen a rise in a new kind of threat called “juice jacking.” Juice jacking happens when a mobile-device user plugs their phone into a seemingly safe charging port at a public place like an airport, hotel, shopping center, or library. Rather than being a simple charging port, criminals hijack the device with the goal of infecting it with malware or other software, eventually giving hackers access to the user’s phone, tablet, or computer.
Luckily, the FBI also offers an easy and convenient tip to avoid juice jacking—simply carry a portable power bank or outlet adapter. Power banks keep you safely powered up all day, while adapters add an effective firewall against would-be hackers. Plus, with power banks, gone are the days of battery anxiety, watching your phone’s power level and searching for an outlet. While you’re at it, consider switching to USB-C, a newer technology that’s faster and more efficient than older USB options.
