Notice in the image for Advanced Password Manager that they have included links and logos for legitimate software and companies, namely Microsoft, McAfee and Norton.
It’s interesting how legitimate this rogue program looks. They even include a phone number and an email address.
One thing I’ve always recommended was to have my clients use a password manager. I recommend a different one than this fake program. If someone uses Advanced Password Manager, they will actually be giving away all their credentials to these scammers.
So how can you be sure the program you’re installing is legitimate? One good way is to run it through one (or several) good virus scanners. Usually they can notify you if the program you’re contemplating on using is real or a fake program. If you’re in doubt, either don’t install it or contact me for an appointment. I will ensure your system is as secure as possible.
