An increasing number of websites are asking visitors to approve “push notifications.” In many cases these are harmless. But occasionally, the communication pathways these establish are exploited by cybercriminals. In this episode starring Tia Carrere as Cass, we see Cass help save her mother Doris from falling victim to a cybercrime via a push notification, supposedly from her bank’s website. Watch to learn more about push notifications and safe push notification interaction behavior.
