How to protect your mobile phone from scams


New Techie
First and foremost know they exist. Phone scames are not so common as back in the line phone days, but still they exist all over the world from especially China to the USA.

Scammers target every one so don't be surprised if you find yourself with someone on the phone trying to scam you.

So how do you recognize a scam?

The First warning sign is an unknown number, but a lot of times it could be your friends or family members changing the phone number. To add to the suspicion if you receive a text from an unknown number with a link, do not click int unless you are expecting someone to send you a link from an unknown number.

There are a few apps out there that will help you protect yourself. Most Xiaomi phones have an installed feature that auto blocks some scams.

I hope this helped you a bit.
