Deepfake - The Invisible Threat: Do You Know How to Protect Yourself?

The prevalence of Deepfake fraud in Vietnam is increasingly alarming. The consequences of these attacks include victims losing money, access to bank accounts, and important personal information. This poses a significant challenge to the community, necessitating heightened awareness and vigilance from everyone to protect themselves and their assets.

In 2023, the Vietnam Security and Network Security Institute (VSEC) recorded 148,615 incidents and 2,630 security vulnerabilities, marking a 21% increase compared to 2022. Notably, unauthorized access incidents and hijacking incidents accounted for the largest proportion, especially within banking, financial, and insurance sectors. Websites were identified as the weakest link in the IT system, with a 62% incidence rate of information security on enterprise websites and 59% in government administrative blocks.

In this context, understanding and preventing online fraud from Deepfake has become an urgent mission. So what exactly is Deepfake? Let's explore its capabilities, as well as the potential risks, with HPT - a revolution that is reshaping the definition of reality!

Deepfake - When technology becomes a weapon

Deepfake is a technology that uses artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning to create realistic fake videos or images. The rapid development of deepfake has made it an ideal tool for online fraud activities.
Deepfake has sparked considerable debate regarding its use. On one hand, it can be used to create creative entertainment content, enhance user experiences, or serve other legitimate purposes. However, the dark side of Deepfake lies in its ability to generate fake videos, images, and audio that can lead to serious consequences such as misinformation, fraud, and invasion of privacy.

The Dangers of Deepfake

The fear of Deepfake stems not only from its ability to create convincingly fake videos but also from its accessibility. With widely available tools and software, anyone can create Deepfakes without needing deep technical expertise.

One of the greatest risks of Deepfake is its impact on the reputation and credibility of individuals and organizations. A Deepfake video can easily harm someone's reputation or an organization by spreading misinformation or falsifying messages. This not only causes damage to one's honor but can also have serious consequences for their career and personal life.

Furthermore, Deepfake poses significant challenges in discerning truth from online information. Identifying and distinguishing between real videos and Deepfakes requires caution and in-depth technological knowledge that is difficult for everyone to possess. In this context, raising awareness and implementing preventive measures are crucially important.

Ways to prevent Deepfake fraud

Enhancing Knowledge

Knowledge is the most crucial weapon in the fight against online fraud. Therefore, the first step to prevent Deepfake fraud is to deeply understand this technology, recognize signs of Deepfake such as unnatural gestures, inconsistent lighting and sound, and understand the key techniques for creating and identifying Deepfakes. This will help protect yourself against cyberattacks.

Verifying the Source

In case you receive messages or videos requesting money or borrowing personal property, initiate a video call or FaceTime for at least 1 minute with the requester.

To ensure authenticity, directly call their personal phone number. Importantly, ask unexpected questions to confirm their real voice, not AI-generated.

Using Reliable Software

Currently, to prevent misuse of Deepfake technology for fraud and personal information theft, experts have developed software such as Sensity AI, Microsoft Video Authenticator, Deepware Scanner to verify the accuracy of videos or images and detect the presence of Deepfakes, thereby preventing wrong-action of this technology.


Deepfake has become an increasingly significant threat to the online safety and security of individuals and organizations. The harms and risks posed by Deepfake, such as fraud and damage to reputation and finances, are extremely serious. However, with awareness and reasonable preventive measures, we can prevent and minimize the negative impacts of Deepfake.
