How to defend yourself?

  • Be cautious
    Hang up immediately and do not share any sensitive information if you receive an unsolicited video call, especially from someone famous or in a position of authority.
  • Utilize detection software
    If you receive video messages that you are uncertain about, use software like Deeptrace to determine if the message is a deepfake.
  • Double-check the authenticity
    Use a second communication channel to confirm information, or ask security questions the original intended party can only answer.

The best you can do is to be aware, keep informed, and brace yourself.
