Kaspersky has warned us as follows:

“The security risks here are obvious: if you’re a regular user you can be tracked through your device IDs; your phone could be silently packed with anything from adware to ransomware. And you don’t even have to be highly-skilled in order to perform such attacks, all the information you need can easily be found on the Internet.”

These attacks are less vulnerable if you have an iPhone and this has to do with the company’s robust mobile operating system. When you connect your Apple device to a computer or other device for the first time, an alert asks whether you trust the computer. The same scenario cannot be replicated on an Android smartphone.
