INFOGRAPHIC: How can SMS Spam Harm You?

  • 96
    Shares

The dangers of SMS spam are not taken seriously by most of us. And this is where fraudsters find their window of opportunity. SMS spam is defined as unwanted text messages and they are not just limited to the traditional SMS (short messaging service) anymore. With the arrival of instant messaging apps like WhatsApp and others, text messaging has become more convenient than ever and this is the sole reason why it has millions of users today. But at the same time, this mode of communication has attracted the unwanted attention of hackers, scammers, and other cyber criminals. Messages are being used to scam users into revealing their personal information or trick them into visiting harmful websites. And given the fact that most of us do not pay attention to the security of our mobile phones as much as we do for our computers and laptops, attackers often get away with what they want.

This infographic draws a basic picture of what is SMS Spam, how it can harm you, and what you can do to stay safe.

Hello Mr. Singha This article was indeed very informative and it articulates towards the recent activity that is profoundly affecting users globally as you have mentioned ,nearly millions of users face this threat which by the looks of it can be well interpreted by the well known saying “wolf in a sheep’s skin”. We should be more careful with what we access through our phones, I for one will definitely be more cautious towards these spam from now on.

Yes, indeed it is sad that despite so many warnings, people are continuing to fall prey to these scams. I myself keep warning people on my facebook pages and otherwise on my wall too – to no avail. Sad!!
