Avoid “Juice Jacking”

Juice jacking is a sort of cyber assault in which a hacker obtains data or installs malware on a mobile device by utilizing a compromised or malicious charging station.

A hacker may install malicious software on the charging station during a juice jacking attack, which can infect the mobile device when it is connected to the station. The software can then take important data from the device, such as passwords and credit card details.

To avoid juice jacking, avoid using public charging stations and instead use your own charger or a portable battery pack, or use a charging-only cable that does not allow data transfer. It is also advised that you maintain the software and security settings on your device up to date.
