Fraudsters are using apps like AnyDesk to gain remote access of your device and carry out transactions.

Here's how the fraud works:

  • Fraudsters convince you to download a remote access app like ‘AnyDesk’
  • The app generates a code which the fraudster asks you to share
  • The fraudster will then ask you to grant certain ‘app permissions’
  • Now the fraudster has access to your device (including OTPs) to make transactions through that app
  • This fraud can affect any mobile banking or payment-related apps like UPI, wallets etc.

How to protect yourself:

  • Avoid remote access apps like AnyDesk
  • Do not share any codes or OTPs with a third-party
  • Do not grant third-party apps any extra app permissions even if requested to do so
  • Uninstall any such app that you may have downloaded on your mobile phone, immediately

Note: Keep your mobile number and e-mail ID updated with the bank to get transaction alerts and keep track of all your banking transaction.
