Samsung to work with Microsoft and Google to protect Galaxy phones from being hacked

According to reports, Samsung is working hard to improve its Galaxy devices against hacker network attacks. For this reason, the company will cooperate with Microsoft and Google to protect its Galaxy smartphones from hackers. Samsung Galaxy devices currently have protections such as Samsung Knox and Secure Folder. Knox is a hardware “vault” that contains sensitive user information such as PINs and passwords. Samsung Knox also offers secure Wi-Fi and DNS and uses trusted domains by default.

However, more sophisticated spyware can directly hack into the device without requiring any action from the user. Apple recently introduced Lockdown Mode for iPhone, iPad and Mac to prevent such attacks. Samsung will work with Google and Microsoft to develop measures to prevent such cyber attacks.

It’s not clear whether Samsung is working on a feature similar to Apple’s lockdown mode, The company previously stated that it is “seeking to introduce the latest FIDO technology into the devices as soon as possible”. The latest FIDO standard allows users to log into apps and websites using the same login data (stored locally on the device) across multiple platforms, including ChromeOS, Windows, and even macOS.
