Emulator

An emulator is software designed to make it look like you’re using a different device, fully mimicking its hardware, software, and even its bugs. The goal is to make a system look exactly like it was something else–be that a different type of PC or a mobile device. Emulators have several legitimate uses, from running legacy applications to entertainment, but they are also employed by bad actors to defraud companies by spoofing the hardware of customers or hiding their digital tracks.
