New Malware Protection Coming to Samsung Phones
Oct 31, 2023, 7:00 AM by Rich Brome
Samsung has revealed that its forthcoming One UI 6 software for its Galaxy phones will include a new feature called Auto Blocker. It's designed to block unauthorized app installations, including blocking all side-loaded apps (apps not from an official app store.) The feature can be turned off for users who wish to side-load apps. But by default it will help protect users against being tricked into installing malware via phishing. It will also help protect against attacks that leverage malicious images sent via messaging apps. Samsung announced a different type of protection against that type of attack in February with a feature called Message Guard. But that didn't cover third-party messaging apps, which this does.
