'Protected-device.site' iPhone Calendar Spam

Posted: March 25, 2020

The 'Protected-device.site' iPhone calendar spam is an issue that you might experience because online con artists have obtained your email address – keep in mind that we are not referring to your login credentials, they just need to know your inbox address. This will enable them to send dozens of invitations to fake events that may be added to your iCloud Calendar and synced to your iPhone's Calendar application immediately. Online con artists have been abusing this feature to bombard iPhone users with undesired calendar entries that may make it nearly impossible to keep track of your important calendar entries.

One of the websites used in these calendar spam campaigns is Protected-device.site – unlike other pages that promote dodgy online stores and special offers, this one specializes in distributing harmful tactics or potentially threatening applications. Some of the events that 'Protected-device.site' is associated with include:

  • Fake information about viruses being installed on your phone.
  • Fake statements that you are vulnerable to hacking attempts.
  • Fake 'System Notifications' about major security concerns.

The goal of the 'Protected-device.site' iPhone Calendar Spam is to get you to visit a shady website that may ask you to install a potentially harmful application or try to get you engaged in a fraudulent scheme that aims to take your money. It is recommended to avoid shady calendar events that you do not remember adding yourself.
