Protect yourself against malware

Look out – especially if you have an Android device.

New variants of Android malware (‘malicious software’) allow scammers to control your device remotely or steal sensitive information like login credentials or card details. This means that scammers can log in to your account and make fraudulent transactions or transfers without your knowledge.

Android malware may be found in apps available in the Google Play Store. They could also be disguised as ‘helpful apps’ in Android Package Kit (APK) files that you may be tricked into downloading. By downloading them or giving access to certain functions, you may unwittingly allow scammers to take control of your device.

The Police and the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore have released an advisory on malware. Read more.

Here is how you can protect yourself against malware:

- Only download apps from the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play Store (for Android).
- Do not download apps (e.g. email attachments, pop-up advertisements or links coming from unsolicited emails, messages or social media posts) without verifying the authenticity and source.
- When installing apps, review the permissions that are requested. Make sure they are genuinely necessary. Asked to download additional apps? Be very wary.
- Install anti-virus software and malware removal tools on phones, computers and devices with Internet access.
- Always get the latest versions of your devices’ operating systems and applications – the latest security patches will address security vulnerabilities. Enable automatic updates so your devices are protected.
- Check transaction details carefully and read the notifications we send you. Notify us immediately if you receive alerts for transactions you did not make.

If you believe you have fallen prey to such scams, please call our OCBC Securities’ hotline immediately at 1800 338 8688 (or +65 6338 8688 if you are overseas) – press option 9 to report fraud.

As scams constantly evolve, please stay vigilant at all times.

Protect your Singpass login credentials

Scammers are now sending phishing SMSes to obtain your Singpass login credentials.

Thereafter, you may be directed to a spoofed login page and prompted to enter your credentials and One-Time Password (OTP). The scammers will then use these to fraudulently apply for credit cards or open banking or trading accounts.

Please take heed when asked for your Singpass login credentials. Do not let your guard down.
