Description of McAfee Dialer Protection

McAfee Dialer Protection keeps you safe from a known vulnerability that could potentially wipe your entire mobile device back to factory default settings, meaning your settings, contacts, photos, videos, apps will be lost.

The operating system your smartphone is running may be vulnerable to potential misuse of USSD commands that could wipe your entire phone. Tapping on a link to a cleverly coded web page could order your phone to reset itself to factory settings and disintegrate all your private data with it. Simply opening a malicious website, either directly or by a link, could instigate a dialer exploit that instantly orders your phone to take unwanted actions, potentially including a factory reset (wiping out all your personal settings, data and apps) or destruction of your SIM card.
Any Android phone running Phone.apk v 4.1 or lower is at risk and that's the broader base of them. Install McAfee Dialer Protection to protect against such attacks. Now, when you tap on an exploiting link, McAfee will intercept and block the USSD command.
