    This will protect you from the O.M.G cable which can execute commands via the USB C cable. However, the user must have this app and the protection enabled for the tool to work. A malicious attacker could get physical access and turn the phone off or socially engineer you to get you to turn it off.

Also, Message Guard is expanded, "Initially launched for messaging apps from Google and Samsung, it now can help protect users using popular third party apps," making messaging safer for all. 

God Bless and Tech Talk To You Later!!!
