Hackers abuse public chargers to hack smartphones

According to the FBI, charging your smartphone at public charging points is unsafe.

Malicious people can install malware or spy software through these chargers. It is safer to bring your charger and charge your smartphone from a standard outlet.

If you still want to charge your smartphone at a public charging station, use a special cable or adapter that blocks data traffic. You can use a power bank to charge your device on the go.

In addition, you have to look out in public places with public Wi-Fi networks because malicious parties can set up a fake network and thus steal login or credit card information.
