  • Description

    Fraudsters use a technique known as "Vishing", which involves stealing credentials from a victim over the phone while posing as a legitimate institution, such as a Bank. This app aims to provide individuals with an opportunity to verify the identity of the caller. The individual provides the caller with a unique link provided by the app. When the caller visits the link, information regarding the caller is sent as a push notification to the individual. This information includes:

    The app also allows the user to view their previous notifications. A particularly useful feature is that the individual is prompted with a notification when they receive an incoming call, reminding them to use the app if required.
