I-T department guidelines
The I-T department has issued warnings to the general public about using third-party apps. Most fake mobile apps use the name of the income-tax department to conceal
their identity and require taxpayers to share personal details. The income-tax department has issued a stern warning that any person using such apps to file his or her income-tax returns would be doing so at his or her own risk. Cyber security sleuths and anti-hacking agencies are also working overtime to ensure that such frauds are nipped in the bud, but the widespread use of smartphones means that users themselves need to take preventive steps.
