Let’s be straightforward – “tech support” scammers can be a real pain in the ass. Scammers can lock out users’ machines and steal their private data. Scammers are the reason IT pros have to deal with too much suspicion on the client’s part when trying to provide remote technical assistance. Lastly, scammers can damage vendor’s reputation by using this or that product for fraudulent purposes.
Keeping our customers and average PC users safe from scams or any other threats is a priority for us at Techinline.
