The most recent type of cyberattacks are “zero-click” exploits, which can occur whenever a phone receives an image. Malicious code could be present in a single image.
In order to foresee possible risks and create preventative security measures, like Samsung Message Guard, Samsung Electronics is continually thinking ahead.
The next concern in a time of rising cybercrime that targets user data is zero-click vulnerabilities. Every third consumer in the globe has had a data breach where their personal information was stolen. With rates more than tripling between 2013 and 2021, data breaches are becoming more frequent.
Threats change with time, and Samsung’s mobile security does too. With the robust Samsung Knox platform, Samsung Galaxy devices provide complete protection against assaults employing video and audio formats. By anticipatorily adding an additional layer of protection for your device and restricting exposure to unseen dangers disguising themselves as image attachments, Samsung Message Guard goes one step further in ensuring that security.
Samsung Message Guard functions as a sophisticated “sandbox” or virtual quarantine. An image file that is sent to you via text is segregated from the rest of your device and confined. This makes it more difficult for malicious software to interface with the operating system or access the device’s files. To make sure it cannot infect the rest of your device, Samsung Message Guard examines the picture file bit by bit and processes it in a controlled environment.
The security program is currently compatible with Google Messages and Samsung Messages.  In keeping with Samsung’s commitment to open collaboration, a software update will be released later to enable Samsung Message Guard to function with additional messaging services.
Samsung Message Guard, to put it simply, is intended to immediately neutralize any potential threat concealed in image files before it can do damage to the device. It doesn’t need to be engaged by the user and runs secretly and quietly in the background.
The most modern and cutting-edge security solution from Samsung is called Message Guard. Thanks to the award-winning Samsung Knox platform, which offers end-to-end protection across all layers of hardware and software and real-time threat detection, Samsung Galaxy devices already offer the best security and privacy protections in the market in other contexts.
The new Samsung Galaxy S23 series comes with Samsung Message Guard. Later this year, it will be made available for more Galaxy smartphones and tablets.
