You need to understand that the techniques of hacking is increasing daily as new devices are coming out and cyber criminality has become a popular job as many are making millions from it despite the continuous hunting and revealing of their tactics many online users still fall the victim of entering into their traps. We shall be revealing the latest means cyber criminals are using to access your accounts in this post and also giving you the simple solution or ways to abate it.
The bad aspect of the rising online criminality is that the more educated people are no going into it, and these set of people are professionals in online codes and files management which impose more traits to all online users, but thanks to many programmers and world online monitoring bodies who continuously reveals any malware sent into the online system and find ways to counter them.
The recent information reaching us revealed that most of these professional cyber criminals has resorted to manually installing spywares in phones and computers meant for sell. They achieve this goal by setting up their own gangs of such product dealers, who allows them to install their spyware into any of the product such that when any one buys such product their activities in the device will be seen by them at the comfort of their homes, hence if the device will be used for financial activities such as mobile banking, or online banking the bank account details will be phished out easily and be used to siphon the account through transfer.

Another means of ensuring complete solution is by formatting any device bought newly and using your hand to install the needed apps through reliable apps stores, details on this will be a topic for another day. So your device will be safer when you format it after purchase, even though there may be games and videos you may like, do not be carried away by such things, your financial security is more important, hence ensure you are safe with your device.
