It is interesting that there is a link from the website to the AnyDesk software. Customers should ask themselves what the link is for.
What should be considered when using AnyDesk?
FraudInvestigator refers to the much-used programme AnyDesk on its homepage. But what function does AnyDesk offer and how do I use the software correctly?
AnyDesk is a remote desktop software that makes it possible to connect from one computer to another and access it. This serves legitimate purposes in the sense of the originator, such as remote maintenance of computers or collaboration on documents.
However, AnyDesk is also misused for fraudulent activities.
Fraudsters often use AnyDesk to access other people’s computers and steal personal information, such as passwords or credit card information. They can also install malware on the target computers or take control of the computers to use them for malicious activities.
It is important to note that AnyDesk can be abused like any other software and it is important to be security conscious when using it. It is best to only allow connections from trusted people and to be careful not to fall for phishing emails pretending to be from AnyDesk.
There is also alternative remote desktop software such as TeamViewer, Chrome Remote Desktop etc. that offer similar applications. But even these are sometimes used by fraudsters for unwanted purposes.
