CNBC released an article this week sharing a message shared by the FBI Denver office online. In this recent tweet, they stated:
"Avoid using free charging stations in airports, hotels or
shopping centers. Bad actors have figured out ways
to use public USB ports to introduce malware and monitoring
software onto devices. Carry your own charger and USB cord and
use an electrical outlet instead."
Here at C-Slide we are ready to help you avoid "Juice-Jacking" (compromised USB stations which can be hijacked through software that can then siphon off usernames and passwords). We have multiple models of Data Blockers and Charging Devices that will prevent unauthorized access to your devices while charging at potentially harmful charging stations.
The FBI warns against using public phone charging stations. Use a data blocker to protect yourself.
