TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, January 22, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Tech support scams have become a pervasive and costly problem for consumers, with scammers posing as legitimate tech support representatives to trick people into paying for unnecessary services or revealing personal information. Guardio said that in 2022 alone, they detected nearly half a million new tech support scam sites. In an effort to combat this growing threat, Guardio has partnered with the scambaiting community on YouTube, who take revenge on scammers to save victims. Both Guardio and Scambaiters aim to protect consumers and raise awareness about the tactics used by tech support scammers.
One of the most notorious YouTube channels is Scambaiter, who turned Guardio's attention to the rise of a very sophisticated, next-level campaign of scammers abusing legitimate remote control software to literally get into their victims' computers and from there directly to their wallets. As a result, Guardio has increased the protection for such RAT Scams and continues to improve their abilities.
Other YouTubers in the community include Trilogy Media, Pleasant Green, and Scammer Payback, who actively went to help a 69-year-old victim in one of their latest videos.
So how exactly does Guardio keep you safe from getting scammed?
The power behind the innovative protection software is stopping attacks before they become problematic.
Guardio provides solutions that help combat new threats, create highly secure environments, and improve user's online experiences. Guardio's browser extension offers online security and identity monitoring on any device.
In our lives, browsers store some of our most valuable information, including messages, banking and wallet information, passwords, and addresses. Our safety in this new arena depends on a dedicated product. As the first line of defense, Guardio plays a critical role. In contrast to traditional solutions, Guardio detects threats before they reach your browser and cause harm rather than removing them once they are on your computer.
Using Guardio, users are protected while browsing online, helping avoid installing malware and falling prey to scams. They receive real-time alerts when their information may be compromised. In addition, Guardio protects up to five family members under one account.
Defending against online threats requires a dedicated product since they are constantly evolving to bypass standard online safety programs.
And so a product like Guardio is the answer to today's and tomorrow's challenges.
Avoiding malware installation and scams can be prevented by protecting online browsing information. With Guardio, users can browse the web confidently as it blocks threats from entering the browser.
And installation is a breeze. After installation, an automatic security scan will detect any existing threats found on the users' browsers. To remove existing threats and enable real-time protection, users can begin a 7-day free trial after completing the scan. Their dashboard allows them to re-run their scans and track their activity.
Guardio features have been noted for their ability to create a safe online environment and ease of use.
Some of the features include phishing protection and harmful site blockers.
Clicking on unknown links in emails, social media scams, pop-ups, and advertisements mostly leads to these sites. Guardio uses in-house features to detect phishing, tech support scams, crypto scams, RAT scams, shopping scams, and a variety of other scams instead of relying solely on blacklists.
Guardio also detects and removes malicious extensions.
Viruses, adware, and other types of malware can be installed by malicious extensions, resulting in irreparable damage. Sometimes they don't appear to be harmful. Since they often sneak in unnoticed or masquerade as valuable tools, it may not even be known they are on the computer.
But with Guardio, those concerns can be eliminated as the software detects and removes such extensions and alerts users before they are installed.
Besides monitoring, Guardio also protects against malicious downloads.
Guardio notifies users if they encounter a malicious download during the initial security scan and protects against remote access trojans.
As well as actively defending against new threats, Guardio eliminates any malware already embedded on your computer.
This two-way communication system keeps devices safe from cyber threats and ensures complete digital health.
Search Hijacker Correction occurs when a third party alters your browser's settings without permission. This can include switching from your default search provider to an unfamiliar one.
However, Guardio can detect and address the issue before it becomes a problem.
In addition, privacy may be at risk if a data breach occurs in any online account. With Guardio, users can keep track of past data leaks and receive real-time alerts so that users can react quickly to prevent identity theft.
A powerful pop-up cleanup feature further enhances the user experience online.
An intrusive notification or pop-up isn't just annoying for its ads. It may be infected with malware, which is potentially harmful and invasive.
It can be challenging to track them down, which makes them hard to remove.
But a simultaneous elimination of all invasive notifications is achieved through Guardio's tracing of the sources.
