What is malware?

Malware is unwanted software that’s installed on your device (computer or phone) without your permission. It's typically created by bad actors and is designed to obtain sensitive information such as your login details and personal information. Malware can be disguised as an application, a popular app on an app store, or a browser extension.

To get rid of any malware that you might have downloaded, you can:

  • Install and scan your devices with an up-to-date independent antivirus scanner

  • Remove untrusted extensions or add-ons from your web browser

  • Reset your browser settings

  • Update your operating system
