Share post:

Reports in the Brazilian newspaper Folha de S.Paulo revealed that criminals in São Paulo are stealing people’s iPhones to access users’ accounts and steal them.

While ordinary thieves stole phones to resell, the new trend that has begun since the pandemic involves unlocking users’ phones and hacking their bank accounts.

According to Police Chief Roberto Monteiro, “Robbers noticed how much information people put in their phones. Usually, Waze users in the car with an Android smartphone are their main focus. Although breaking an iOS system is more difficult, they have also specialized in it.”
