Kind reminder that SMS is not safe/secure.
Mobile carriers are injecting ads into authentication SMSs sent from Google: an ad for a VPN service.
But it could have been any link in the message you were expecting to receive from a trusted source. A link to enter your password, maybe?
@tomosaigon That sounds awful like USA 😬 Am I right?
@edgren I think Australia and maybe it depends on the laws in the country on if carriers are allowed to hijack message content like that.
@tomosaigon Ok. That would be very illegal here in Sweden (what I know of)... luckily 😅
@edgren Sounds like consumers are more protected there!
@tomosaigon Yeah. I wish it become safer in those other countries soon, too.
