Samsung wants to increase security in its Galaxy smartphones and is introducing another innovation for us. Auto Blocker was launched this week, the new function will be available on devices with OneUI 6 and Android 14 and offers us “a new security system”.
Auto blockers, for example, can prevent installing apps from external or unknown sources – also known as sideloading. Actually what is the advantage of Android operating system can also become a problem. Samsung is initially targeting the new function for some inexperienced users.
“The feature can prevent social engineering attacks like voice phishing, in which users are tricked into installing malware through fake calls,” the company wrote and added other benefits of the innovation.
“Auto Blocker also has additional controls: this includes enabling app security checks that can detect malware. Additionally, malicious commands and software installations sent via USB cables can be blocked.”
