It puts all contacts in one .vcf file? ...And .vcf file can be viewed in Notepad? - That would be useful. (In case of problems.)

It puts all contacts in one .vcf file?
Yes.
Android's .VCF FILE is different than any other format like windows / S60 (Nokia Feature Fones) contacts .vcf file.
Android puts all contacts in single .vcf file
Windows (Outlook) / S60 (Nokia Feature Fones) saves each contact in separate .vcf file.

And .vcf file can be viewed in Notepad? - That would be useful. (In case of problems.)
Yes !
Try it.
Open notepad on PC / Laptop.
Open VCF File after clicking on All Files (not All Text Files) at bottom.
I can open it in Win 10 easily.
It will be in cluttered form
But you can recognize it as text and number format.

Save it as separate text file to be opened in any device in Notepad.


It is actually in CSV format only with android coding.
But if you can remember part / complete name or number,
you can search it easily.

Some mobile apps are also able to open it in text viewer files.
You have to do experiment with your mobile.
Or convert it online to desirable format (Text Format or csv format or any other format) easily.

ok, I must experiment. I must start by buying a data bundle for the phone and installing that app, and make a big/multi-contact .vcf file. Then I want to see what gmx.com can do, I think it can probably import from .vcf

RBI warns of mobile data theft by ‘AnyDesk’ app
The cyber security and IT examination cell of the central bank warned of mobile application ‘AnyDesk’, which is being used by fraudsters to access data on mobile devices.

NEW DELHI: Amid rising instances of fraud using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) platform, the Reserve Bank of India has cautioned all banks and payment system operators about a new modus operandi allegedly used by scammers to target customer phones.

In an alert dated February 14, the cyber security and IT examination cell of the central bank said that a mobile application called ‘AnyDesk’ was allegedly being used by fraudsters to access data on mobile devices. Once the app is installed on customer phones, it seeks permission to access controls of the phone, like all other applications.
“An app code (nine-digit number) would be generated and once the fraudster inserts this code, he would ask the victim to grant permission. Post this, the fraudster will get full access to the victim’s device,” the circular read. The app then allegedly proceeds to steal confidential data on the phone to carry out fraudulent transactions via other payments apps.
In its alert, the RBI said that it had sent out a similar advisory on January 10. Officials say the circular was originally issued by National Payments Commission of India (NPCI) to ensure that genuine makers of payments applications put some controls on the kind of data they access on customer phones. Data on the NPCI website shows that between April 2018 and January 2019, the UPI platform saw 388 crore transactions worth over Rs 6.4 lakh crore.

RBI spots fraud that wipes out a customer's bank balance via UPI, alarm sounded
Fraudsters get victims to download the AnyDesk app, which gives them remote access to the mobile. After that, all your OTPs are theirs too.

RBI office.

MUMBAI: The Reserve Bank of India has warned banks of an emerging digital banking fraud that can wipe out a customer’s bank balance by using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) route.

The modus operandi is simple: fraudsters get victims to download an app called AnyDesk. Hackers get remote access to the mobile through a nine-digit code generated on the victim’s device. “Once a fraudster inserts this app code on his device, he will ask the victim to grant certain permissions, which are similar to what are required while using other apps,” RBI said in an advisory.

This enables the imposter to gain access to the victim’s device and carry out transaction fraudulently. The modus operandi, according to RBI, can be used to carry out transactions through any mobile banking app or payment-related apps, including UPI or wallets.

The central bank has sent an advisory to all commercial banks as the magnitude of the threat could well jeopardise thousands of crores of rupees in the accounts of retail customers, two people with direct knowledge of the matter told ET Magazine.

“We have already started issuing alerts to our customers as the regulator has expressed concern over such new ways of digital frauds,” said a senior bank executive, who did not wish to be identified. This is also relevant to customers transacting on various e-commerce platforms, the person added.

An app may be stealing your bank data, RBI warns digital, UPI users
Digital security concerns have assumed greater importance amid the Modi government's efforts to steer India towards a less-cash, digital economy

Do you use online banking? Beware! Hackers might be fraudulently accessing your e-wallets, mobile banking app and UPI. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has warned banks of a digital banking fraud that could wipe out a customer’s bank balance by using the Unified Payment Interface (UPI) route. In an alert dated February 14, the cybersecurity and IT examination cell of the central bank said that a mobile application called ‘AnyDesk’ was allegedly being used by fraudsters to access data on mobile devices.
Digital security concerns have assumed a greater importance amid the Narendra Modi government's efforts to steer India towards a less-cash, digital economy.



What is 'AnyDesk'?
‘Anydesk’ is a remote control application. It works to connect one device to another.
How can the fraud wipe out a customer's bank balance?
The method is simple.
— First, fraudsters get bank customers to download the app (AnyDesk).
— Through a nine-digit code generated on the customers' device, hackers get remote access to their mobile.
— After inserting the app code on the device, the hacker asks customers to grant certain permissions, which are similar to what is required while using other apps.
— Once they gain access to the mobile phone, hackers can carry out transactions fraudulently through any mobile banking app or payment-related apps, including UPI or wallets.
What must you do in case your mobile is hacked?
  • If you are banking electronically, you must register yourself for SMS/email alerts and immediately inform your bank in case of a fraud.
  • According to RBI, you must only use sites with https while banking online.
  • Avoid banking on free networks.
  • Regularly change and do not share your password/PIN
Rise in the number of UPI transactions and digital banking — a cause for worry?
RBI's warning on 'AnyDesk' calls for attention amid a rising volume of UPI transactions and digital banking. According to a Business Standard report, digital payments saw a spike after demonetisation. According to a report by the Reserve Bank of India, a total of 2,059 cases of cyber fraud were reported in 2017-18 amounting to Rs 109.6 crore. The number of cyber fraud cases in 2016-17 was 1,372 amounting to Rs 42.3 crore. A spike in cyber frauds is bigger than most other types of bank frauds. A total of 5,917 bank frauds were reported in 2017-18 and nearly a third of these were cyber frauds. UPI, Narendra Modi government's flagship payments platform, crossed the Rs 1 trillion milestone for monthly value in December 2018. NPCI attributed UPI’s success to three main features — simplicity, seamlessness and security. However, chinks in the UPI system began to show soon after it was introduced.

Free and easy to use audio recorder for Android. It has been specifically designed for high-quality and long-time recording with a clean and simple user interface.

With a skipping silence on-the-fly feature you can shorten recordings by omitting relative silence. It allows you, for example, to catch night sleep talks or maybe some snoring, whatever comes first. It is by the way how the idea to make this app was born: my wife wanted to prove that I talk at night. It turns out, I do.

Since 2012 this app has been installed on more than 40 million devices worldwide and proven to be a reliable everyday tool. From it's early days it has been known as Smart Voice Recorder, rebranded later to a bit more generic name. Because, you know, it's great not only for voice.

Following are the great examples of how Smart Recorder can be useful for you, as noted by our wonderful users:

"I use this app frequently to record brief notes to myself for my research. It is easy to use and reliable."

"As a college student, this has been awesome! Record the whole lecture and take notes later!"

"Great app! Easy to use, record and playback as well as options to upload recordings to SoundCloud or share files…"

"Very useful to monitor our dog, how much he barks when he is alone at home…"

"…Used it in the office for presentation prep and personal speeches."

"Love the 'skip silence' feature, it is very useful for checking sleep talk."

"Great for my quick song ideas."

"For a person who has hearing problems like me, this is a perfect app. Thank you!"

"…Even with my phone in my pocket recording a lecture, the audio is clear."

"Very good quick recording app for my acoustic guitar ideas!"


And a bonus one:
"Very good for ghost haunting…"


Regarding phone calls:
This app is not designed explicitly for recording phone calls. Some manufacturers block the ability to record the other party of a phone call for privacy or legal reasons. For the same purpose, the app will even pause recording during phone calls, but it can be turned off in the settings. Check your local laws and make sure it works on your handset first.

More features:
• Automatic and manual sensitivity control for Skip silence mode (Beta)
• Live audio spectrum analyzer
• Wave/PCM encoding with adjustable sample rate (8-44 kHz)
• Recording in the background (even when a display is off)
• Save/pause/resume/cancel recording process control
• Efficient and easy on battery
• Recording time limited only by available space on your storage (and tech. limit 2GB per file)
• Straightforward recordings list and many sharing options
• Launcher shortcut to start recording in one tap
• Microphone gain calibration tool.
