Huawei Mate20 Pro to give Samsung and Apple a run for their money

Tech Guru Aki Anastasiou weighs in on how we could be vulnerable to hackers in light of what happened to Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba.

A video of sexual nature involving the minister was leaked on social over the weekend. in his response, Gigaba says his phone was hacked and sensitive information was taken from his device.

Anastasiou says phones are very vulnerable depending on where you charge your phone and which wireless networks we connect to.

He adds that people often assume that an open WiFi hotspot is to be trusted not realising what they are connecting to.

I have seen this in real life where somebody sitting in a business lounge set up a false hotspot and people connect to it and they have an instant connection to their devices. That's scary!
