In Brazil, Criminals Are Stealing iPhones for Hacking from elina john's blog

The price of the iPhone always influences thieves. Stealing and selling these phones can always be a beneficial deal for thieves because they always get higher prices for old iPhones. 

But have you ever wondered how it would feel if a thief steals an iPhone not for selling it but for something else? Yes, something similar is being seen in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where thieves are stealing iPhones not to sell them but to find out the account details of users so that they can steal money from the account.

According to Brazil’s Folha de Paulo newspaper, the beginning of the corona epidemic is an important thing seen in the stolen iPhone. People whose iPhone 11 and iPhone XR are being stolen are not only losing their phones but also losing their bank accounts. Earlier the phone was stolen and sold, but now a new gang is stealing iPhones to get access to people’s accounts.

What police is saying on the issue

Talking about the matter, Police Chief Roberto Monteiro said that thieves have an idea of how much information people have on their phones. Android smartphone users are the usual target, and iOS is more difficult to hack, but it seems they are specialized in it.”

Brazil Consumer Protection Regulator in Sao Paulo State has said it plans to take action on Apple and other smartphone manufacturing companies. Executive Director Fernando Kapege said in a statement that Procon has already revealed a cell phone receiver gang whose main business is not to re-sell the phone but to cheat passwords for bank frauds. This has been detected by an Army of Hackers.

Protect your iPhone from this kind of hacking

It’s more difficult to hack the iPhone than the Android phone. However, hackers who have received training can easily do this work. Update your iPhone with the latest version of software to protect it from hacking. Updating the phone fixes bugs. Apple can also detect any kind of virus. If these bugs are not fixed, they can disclose your data to the attackers.

Also, another way to prevent the phone from being hacked is not to receive messages sent from any unknown senders. If you receive a mail or message with any link and you don’t know it, don’t open it because such mail or messages are usually sent by hackers.

The online world is full of hackers, and cybersecurity experts have been dealing with them for a long time. Hackers target not only people but also focus on organizations and even other countries’ essential networks.

Global challenges are standing in front of us in terms of hacking, and we have to follow the best practices to save our data and privacy from hackers. If you notice any suspicious activities in your account, be careful and report them to the city’s cyber cell.
