The malicious behavior of hackers is our expertise, which is why we’re proud to introduce dfndr lab to help you fight cyber attacks.
The last thing you want to worry about is the security and privacy of information stored on your Android phone. The recent rise in mobile attacks is a strong indicator that the personal information in your phone equates to financial gain or identity theft for cyber thieves, often leaving victims feeling violated, even deeply shocked that they were hacked at all.
To keep steps ahead of hackers, our threat analysts have responded to this void of active protection by creating dfndr lab, a superior resource for smartphone users that’s easy to use.
You probably have a few questions on how dfndr lab can assist you against cyber attacks. We’ve got the answers!
Q: What is dfndr lab?
A: dfndr lab, is PSafe’s team of global security experts that use artificial intelligence, proprietary technology, and community collaboration to uncover cyber attacks and scams, monitoring over 2 billion URLs and detects on average 800,000 – 900,000 malicious attempts every day.
Q: What can dfndr lab do for me, the average person?
A: This indispensable resource reports mobile threats in real-time and has a URL checker that lets you know if a link is safe. The URL checker connects to our proprietary anti-hacking technology that reviews a million URLs daily. Furthermore, if you’ve discovered a brand new scam we haven’t seen before, our threat analysts will add it to our database. When we all work together to fight hackers in this way, we create a safer internet for all. We call it crowdsourced security.
Q; Why would I want to check a link?
A: Say you receive an SMS from your mother about a sale at a major store and she leaves a link to a coupon for you to redeem. The message appears convincing, so you click the link and unknowingly introduce malware to your device. The URL checker is a self-serve tool to get peace of mind before clicking and doesn’t require you to download an app. However, for a more preventative measure, it’s best to have an antivirus app like dfndr security working 24/7 on your phone with our revolutionary anti-hacking feature activated to anticipate and block phishing or malware attacks.
Q: How do I use the URL checker tool?
A: When you receive a message with a link, press and hold your finger on the link (but don’t tap!) until a dialog screen comes up and shows you the full link address. Tap on “copy the link”, open the dfndr lab page and paste the link into the URL checker tool. An alert will tell you right away if a link is trustworthy or not.
Q: What other information can I find on dfndr lab?
A: Education is a key component to protecting yourself. Brush up on security terms with the Security Glossary or share our infographic with your friends and family about the emerging threats that smartphone users should know.
Q: Anything else?
A: Yes! To always have dfndr lab on your device screen ready to use, create a shortcut. It’s super easy!
Remember that digital security is a shared responsibility. Take proactive steps when links appear in your SMS messages, or in chat services like Facebook Messenger. Always ask yourself: would this friend or company normally send this kind of message?
If not: you’re better off contacting the sender directly to confirm the message details. Remember that people and companies get hacked.
If the message seems genuine: always examine links prior to tapping. For example, If you’ve just been offered an e-coupon by Ray-Ban, ensure the domain name says https://www.ray-ban.com. If the domain name contains odd letters or an iteration of the company name (for example, http://cheap-deals-ray-ban.com), don’t open it! If you’re not completely certain, visit the dfndr lab and use the URL checker tool to verify a link’s safety quickly and easily.
We know you’re concerned about the information stored on your phone because it’s such an integral part of your daily routine. With dfndr lab, we give you the tools to connect to your digital life without worry.
