A major hacker attack has targeted various iPhone users, prompting an urgent advisory on how to better protect your device.

The National Security Agency (NSA) has issued a critical warning to both iPhone and Android users on safeguarding themselves from hackers.

One of the simplest and most effective methods is to turn your mobile phone off and on once a week.

This action forces all apps to close and logs you out of social media and bank accounts, preventing hackers from accessing sensitive information.

Additional recommendations from the NSA include:

  • Regularly Updating Software and Apps: Keeping your software and apps updated can prevent vulnerabilities that hackers exploit.

  • Avoiding Public WiFi Networks: Public WiFi can be insecure; use them with caution.

  • Using Strong PIN Codes: Make sure your lock screen has a strong PIN code.

Oliver Page, CEO of Cybernut, also highlights the dangers of social engineering tactics. He advises against responding to unsolicited emails requesting sensitive information, as this can lead to account compromise and identity theft.

The NSA also warns against opening email attachments or links from unknown sources, which might install malicious software without your knowledge.

Trusting phone calls or messages without verification can also be dangerous, as scammers often manipulate victims into disclosing sensitive information or taking actions that compromise their security.

To protect yourself from hackers, consider sharing your data only with those who have limited access rights, and always secure your devices with a strong PIN code.
