Cryptojaking is the unauthorised use of someone else’s computer to mine for cryptocurrency. They do this because you need a lot of electricity and processor power to make any real money with coinmining, so they steal other people’s. This can cause your computer or mobile phone to run painfully slowly as well as draining your battery power and can be installed on your mobile by downloading Apps Android Store from untrusted websites.
