''THAT'S ONE HELL OF LONG LIST, ZILLI ! :...............

'' Zilli, please, Let me just review it some many couple of times, over, and then, set The World  Students Society, out on the path of more, forgiveness.

Rogues, crooks, criminals, and generally lower form of life, use little market purchased hanky-panky  devices for Laptops and 'communication gremlin channels', to ''crook their identity'' and confuse and  stir the receiver in taking a call.

The World Students Society, humbly and respectfully warns all such practitioners. Enough of That!

And ''Zilli, thank the team, on behalf of the good, and law abiding citizens of the world.''

''Bulk up the sweep and stay vigilante and recorded.''

STUDENTS SMARTPHONE is their confidante, but your hand-held connection to the world, is one of your biggest vulnerabilities.

Scammers can take advantage of day-to-day tasks that seem innocuous, like checking a bank balance or charging a phone at a public USB port, to exploit a personal information for their profit.

To keep the data safe, start by understanding the threats you face. Your phone has three main areas of vulnerability:

.-  Hardware.
.-  Software.
.-  Your phone number.

Each carries a risk, and there are steps  you can take to mitigate them.

FOR DAILY SECURITY, go beyond the four digit passcode if  possible, says Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at the cyber security company MCAfee.

''Passcodes aren't effective as biometrics, like fingerprint readers or facial recognition software,  because people can do shoulder surfing to see your passcode and get into your phone'' if they steal it.


Scammers can target your personal information using unsecured wireless networks and software vulnerabilities.

Network risks : be wary of public Wi-Fi networks.

''We advise against using public Wi-Fi, but if you're going to use it, avoid logging in to sensitive accounts,'' says Allen Spence, a director of product leadership at IDSheild, an identity theft protection company.

To protect yourself from inadvertently using insecure Wi-Fi networks, adjust your phone settings to avoid auto-connecting to Wi-Fi.

Hackers can exploit vulnerabilities in phone software. Schifferie of the FTC suggests consumers routinely check for and download software updates for their phones, because updates often include security patches.


There are two common ways that scammers target your number : robocall scams and phone numbers : robocall scams and phone number theft.

US consumers fielded nearly 48 billion robocalls in 2018, according to an estimate from robocall blocking service  YouMail. That was a 57 percent increase from 2017.

A common scam comes from supposed representatives of the Social Security Administration requesting you give your personal information or your benefits will be cut.

If you get a call from a number you don't recognise, don't answer.

That's the best way to ensure you don't get caught up in a phone scam. And know that government agencies like Social Security and the IRS won't call you out of the blue seeking your personal information.

''You should never give personal info or money unless you have initiated the call,'' Schifferie says. If you answer a call and realise it may be scammer, hang up, she advises.

Scammers are stealing phone numbers, which can leave you vulnerable to other forms of identity theft.


A malevolent actor calls your cellphone carrier pretending to be you, and after confirming some key information such as your mother's maiden name, transfers your phone number to their device.

You may not find out this has happened until you go to make a call and find that your SIM card has been deactivated.

Because phone numbers are are often used as a security keys, hackers may be able to get into many other accounts once they have access to your to your phone account.

Make it harder to penetrate by avoiding common security questions., Davis says. ''When you set up your security questions and answers, make sure you're using really challenging questions that are going to be hard to figure out.''

With respectful dedication to the Good and law abiding Citizens of the world, Students, Professors and Teachers.
