Stalkerware has capabilities as dangerous as nation-state malware, but is often marketed as legitimate. So how do you protect against stalkerware when it’s not always clear it’s a threat?
It’s time for the cybersecurity community to fight stalkerware with all they’ve got. For National Cybersecurity Awareness and Domestic Violence Awareness months, we renew our pledge.
Many domestic abuse survivors need help before stalkerware strikes. Here, we give basic advice on device security and protecting sensitive data.
Starting today, we’re doing more to protect stalkerware victims than improve our detection capabilities. We’re helping survivors understand how to tell if they’re being watched on their devices—and how to safely get out of the situation.
