Samsung’s One UI 7.0 might make juice-jacking attacks next to impossible on its Galaxy devices

One UI 7 Android 15

You might have heard of hundreds of data breaches or hacking cases in recent years, with people compromising their devices’ data and other essential information. While Google has been constantly working on making its Android ecosystem more secure and reliable for years, its next OS version, Android 15, will cover all the data hacking issues with certain advanced security changes and enhancements. 

Meanwhile, Juice Jacking, the newest form of hacking, has been in the talks for a while, and Google’s Android 15 will ensure that Android smartphones are safe from this attack. Some more improved safety measures against Juice Jacking are making their way to Android 15. According to the report, Samsung could probably offer this feature to its Galaxy ecosystem with the next One UI 7.0, though, which will be based on Android 15. 

Samsung might offer a more improved Lockdown mode with One UI 7.0

With Android 15 is already under works, as Google has already released several new and exciting features and other relevant enhancements as a part of beta builds, the company has further added a new Lockdown Mode to Android 15, which, when activated, does not allow someone to access your phone’s data using a USB cable, thus making Juice Jacking next to impossible, as this Juice jacking process could only be performed by extracting the entire data from a device using a USB cable under the guise of charging.

Meanwhile, Samsung has already started working on its next One UI 7 version behind closed doors. It’s. It’s possible that the brand might bring a much more improved Lockdown Mode that could help to protect the Galaxy devices from the attack of Juice Jacking, as Google will be introducing the new Lockdown Mode that will significantly protect the Android devices from the extraction of data via a USB cable. 

However, Samsung Galaxy models already infuse a Lockdown Mode, but sadly, it only protects the device from being unlocked using methods such as pattern, PIN, or password. Thus, with the Android 15-based One UI 7.0, Samsung could change this situation and offer a more advanced version of the Lockdown Mode for its entire Galaxy ecosystem.

Samsung says that it will provide the fix for the critical issue, which is coming in patch CVE-2024-32896 in August. With this patch, the company will ensure the user’s data security. You can observe how critical this issue is by the US government officials’ directive to federal employees to update their pixel devices by July 4 or stop using them.
