Scams. They’re everywhere, and millions of individuals fall for them every year. Besides inflicting billion-dollar losses, online scams threaten users’ privacy, identity and overall wellbeing.
Scammers are getting better at tricking individuals into giving away personal info, credentials, and money too. They are quick on their feet and adapt to the latest trends, employ multiple social engineering tricks, and wield technological advancements (including AI) to manipulate and deceive victims.
Scammers are great at marketing and leveraging new and recurring events to scam unwary individuals out of their hard-earned money.
Enter Scamio, our next-gen scam detector powered by AI and Bitdefender advanced threat prevention and detection technologies designed to help you quickly verify the legitimacy of links, QR codes, messages and other fraudulent schemes delivered to you via email, text or instant messaging apps.
To put it succinctly, Bitdefender Scamio is a scam detector chatbot that gives you a hassle-free way to spot and prevent online scams before they can do any harm to you, your family or your savings.
“The rapid rise of AI adoption by cybercriminals to dupe people out of money, steal personal information, and infiltrate their digital lives has become a true game changer,” said Ciprian Istrate, senior vice president of operations, Consumer Solutions Group at Bitdefender. “Online scams that were once easy to spot, have become difficult to detect with the naked eye. Scamio evens the playing field by giving reliable probability of malicious activity based on message content and context. It’s like having a personal assistant you can always talk to and rely on to help protect your digital life.”
You only need to ask Scamio whether a link you received is suspicious or to describe a scenario to receive a verdict.
