Google working on a scanning deceptive apps feature for phishing protection

Published

on


Google has recently rolled out the Android 14 QPR2 Beta 2 update for Pixel devices. With the latest update, the company has only shared some bug fixes, which are done under several functions to enhance the performance of built-in functions. According to a report, one more feature is highlighted that will protect you from the threat of phishing.

For tech starters, phishing is a type of cyber attack that is used by hackers to steal your sensitive information. In this attack, users don’t notice anything suspicious and are easily trapped. More specifically, in this attack, the hacker uses several links or applications that look official but are connected to their servers, and without noticing, several users give their personal information. So to protect Android users from these kinds of attacks, Google will soon launch a new built-in application.

The scanning for deceptive apps feature will be the game-changer

According to what was investigated by Android police, there is a new scanning for deceptive features discovered under the security and privacy menu. When you turn it on, it will start checking the app’s activity and other deceptive behaviors. Informatively, this process will continue in the background and analyze the device’s activity, and if it finds any suspicious activity, you will get an immediate warning.

However, Google hasn’t published anything about this feature in the official changelog; furthermore, after investigating the source code of the official software of Android 14 QPR2, it was revealed that there will be a service called ‘content protection’ that will try to detect app activity about password field sharing or ask the user for some related things like username, email, phone, number, login, and sign in. To ensure safety, Google may introduce a blocklist feature for certain apps.
