More and more smartphones are under attack, and Samsung is actively aware of this. The theft of user data and information is lucrative and these do not always come from where they are expected, and are even sponsored by states.
To avoid this situation in the future and prevent attacks that may occur, Samsung wants to take the right measures. To do this, it has partnered with Google and Microsoft to create the necessary mechanisms on their smartphones.
Samsung wants to protect its smartphones
Basically, Android smartphones are already equipped with essential tools to protect users and their data. Examples are Samsung Knox or Secure Folder, which guarantee a consistently high layer of protection.
As threats multiply, Samsung wants to elevate these mechanisms and tools even further. For this, it has teamed up with Google and Microsoft, which manage to guarantee the prevention of any possible phishing attack that may occur in the future.
Measures to protect users against attacks
By sharing this information, Samsung revealed which has increasingly detected attacks sponsored or carried out by sovereign states. At the same time, and since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Trojan horses to steal bank details have also multiplied.
It's unclear if Samsung is working on a feature similar to Lock Mode that Apple introduced a few days ago. However, the company has revealed that it is looking to introduce the latest FIDO technologies to its smartphones as soon as possible.
Microsoft and Google are the partners of choice
Adoption of the latest FIDO standard should allow customers to use the same login data (stored locally on the device) across multiple platforms. This includes Chrome OS, Windows, and even macOS, for logging into various apps and websites.
With this association, Samsung will guarantee access to a unique technology that will be extremely useful to users. At the same time, it creates solutions that Google and Microsoft can take advantage of and also increase the protection of their systems.
