A shocking new scam is taking over the world of the internet and it’s alarming to say that so many users are falling prey to the ordeal!
As it is, we’re all facing an immense threat in relation to the world of cybersecurity. But this new shocking campaign that offers users a luring profile picture that’s free of cost is really definitely worth a glance.
Many assume the digital avatar app called ‘NewProfilePic’ is definitely a modern-day version of getting the best picture and falling prey to the trend, they’re downloading it, without realizing the consequences.
It’s a trendy application, without any doubt. It was created by Moscow with the help of a tech company that is using face recognition technology that hacks into all of your information, especially bank or finance related.
Tech experts have had their say on the matter and they claim the alarming features are definitely worrisome, especially in regards to the secret way that they send out details without any user noticing.
Therefore, now they’re saying those that have downloaded must delete it before it’s too late as the app is capable of some shocking behavior including privacy infringement.
“We want users to know that they can’t fall prey to these types of scams that are just doing great harm along the way. Tens of thousands have already put up the images in return for the free picture”- was the statement released by concerned officials from the cybersecurity department.
But how exactly does the app work? Well, it is known to take your picture in very high resolution, focusing primarily on the face. Obviously, any app that would do something like this is just insane and if that doesn’t raise an alarm in users’ minds, then we’re not quite sure what will.
The company behind the mischievous activity is said to be Moscow-based and has a stronghold in Panama City.
