Cyber Dost, one of MHA's twitter profiles urged users to not fall for such apps that promise to monitor oxygen levels on their phones, as they may be mediums for malware, spyware and other forms of malicious codes and tools that may infect the device.
Earlier this month, the verified account asked the users to only download e-wallet apps in their smartphones after verification and authentication, which means directly installing them from Apple's App Store and Google Play Store, reported The Financial Express.
Any e-wallet links received through SMS, email or social media platforms could be a fraud and should not be trusted.
Lucrative advertisements regarding discount coupons, cashback or festival coupons through UPI apps on social media should also be avoided as such offers are the mediums to transfer the money from his/her bank account without the user's notice.
