There is No Battery Virus - Do Not Be Fooled by Cybercriminals

Would you share this article with others?

Mobile users, there is no battery virus, so do not be fooled by cybercriminals. Cybercriminals are using malicious pop-up advertisements and other fake messages to trick mobile users into believing their devices or smartphones are infected with a so-called "battery virus." These "battery virus" scams are being used by cybercriminals to frighten mobile users into downloading and installing malicious apps disguised as legitimate antivirus software that the cybercrooks claim will remove the so-called virus. And, they also use the same scams to trick potential victims into visiting phishing or fraudulent websites that steal personal and financial information.

But, again, there is no "battery virus." A smartphone's or mobile device's battery cannot get infected with a virus, and cannot be damaged by a virus. Therefore, recipients of messages claiming otherwise, should ignore or delete them, and should never be tricked into following the instructions in them.
