Aware of the many frauds that use telephone calls or messages on popular applications, many parties have actually advised and educated people not to install applications carelessly. Unfortunately, not everyone understands and is aware of the importance of protecting personal data.

Moreover, cybercriminals usually target people who don't really understand cyber security. This can also be very dangerous, because when a smartphone user downloads an application carelessly, it is possible that the application will access all data, including important data.

Worse, when the data accessed is financial-related data, this can cause material losses. In fact, there have been cases where m-banking and e-wallet balances have been completely drained and the owner cannot do anything.

The rise in cybercrime has prompted antivirus company McAfee to launch a new feature to address the problem of data theft. The newest feature of this antivirus is called McAfee Scam Protection.
