    Exclamation How to protect us from RAT malware?

    Remote Access Trojan is a malware program used to remotely get the administrative control over the target device!


    Letting your phone alone for seconds could make your device an infected one! It only takes a few seconds to download these RATs on your device!
    On the other hand, RATs are usually downloaded invisibly with a user requested program! Yes, we are the ones who give permissions to install RATs in our devices by clicking ALLOW!
    Rats are attached with images,games,emails etc. The intruder may use our device to distribute RATs to other connected devices too.
    And the critical part is that they don't show up in the list of running programs and are difficult to detect!


    P.S: What are the prerequisites to protect our devices from RATs? Suggest it below
    Do what is RIGHT, NOT what is EASY!
