Just read on one of our local news sites that hackers can hack into your phone if you have WiFi Calling on? Anyone else here this, or can confirm or deny. Apparently Google has requested it's users to do this. 🤷🏻‍:male_sign:

Read about it a few days ago and some of devices might be affected. I have s23 and pixel 7 which may not be affected as Google released March update for pixel 7. I also own Pixel 6a, so this device might still vulnerable although Google the other day supposedly release update for pixel 6 devices too.

I was informed of this vulnerability by a trusted techie friend so I turned it off on my phone. I am now waiting for a security fix from Samsung.

Turn off wifi calling.

All a hacker would need is the victim’s phone number, which can be used to compromise the phone without the user knowing anything is wrong.

The devices affected are:

- Samsung Galaxy phones, including those in the S22, M33, M13, M12, A71, A53, A33, A21, A13, A12 and A04 series

Hello, We understand the concern of vulnerabilities. Samsung takes the safety of our customers very seriously. After determining 6 vulnerabilities may potentially impact select Galaxy devices, of which none were 'severe', Samsung released security patches for 5 of these in March. Another security patch will be released in April to address the remaining vulnerability.

As always, we recommend that all users keep their devices updated with the latest software to ensure the highest level of protection possible
