Remote access scams, also known as impersonation scams, are a relatively new form of cybercrime that has been increasing during the past couple of years.

In a remote access scam, fraudsters identify themselves as representatives of reputable companies and say they are calling to “help fix a technical problem.” They convince the customer to download and install a remote access tool such as TeamViewer and Android VNC Viewer so they can gain control of the user’s device and assume their digital identity.

Accertify’s InMobile product detects malware and crimeware as well as remote access applications that are active while a phone call is in progress so businesses can take immediate action to prevent remote access scams. Read the full story for more information.
