SAMSUNG owners have quietly received a new feature called Auto Blocker that can keep their money safe from hackers.

It essentially blocks all apps and messages containing malware.

It can also turn on app security checks and prevent harmful commands and software installations via a USB cable.

This comes amid a rise in cyber criminals trying to access devices through charging ports at airports.

The feature is free to download – all Samsung owners need to do is update their device and search for Auto Blocker in settings to set it up.

If you can’t see it on your device – fear not.

The new feature, which officially launched in late October, has been rolled out within the One UI 6.0 update – known as Android 14 for Google Pixel owners.

Samsung phones will be receiving the update in stages, from November 2023 all the way through to January 2024.

Be sure to check this list to see when One UI 6.0 will be available to download on your device.

The cost of a stolen or hacked phone has never been higher.

With our banking increasingly entwined with our phones, it can be financially devastating to install malware.

Other One UI 6.0 perks

Beyond Auto Blocker, the One UI 6.0 update features a raft of other highlights, including a new emoji design.

A new button layout has brought along dedicated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth icons to the top of the screen for easy access.

Samsung owners (and millions of other Android fans) will also be able to reposition the clock on their Lock screen for added customisation.

There’s a more “stylish and modern” default font, according to experts at SamMobile, that can be selected in Settings.

Pop-up windows will stay open when you navigate over to the Recents screen, so users can pick up where they left off.

Samsung owners can also enjoy a new weather widget with enhanced illustrations alongside more information about snowfall, atmospheric pressure and moon phases.

The camera app is gaining custom widgets to choose from, more alignment options for watermarks, easier video sizing options, quality optimisation and a new Auto FPS setting for brighter videos.

While the gallery has been tweaked to allow for quicker edits in detail view and the ability to ave clipped images and stickers.
