malicious Android apps
The Google Play Store has recently hosted a number of dangerous apps. Recently, 6 new Android malware have been identified that you should remove immediately from your device.
If you are one of those Android users who are constantly receiving new apps and games from the Play Store , it is better to check the security issues related to it before installing these apps. Recently, 6 malicious Android applications were identified that were in the Play Store.
Unfortunately, some malware will not be detected for a long time. Users may still be exposed to such malware if they have complied with all pre-installation security requirements. The presence of such apps in the Play Store has recently increased dramatically, and security experts discover dozens of malicious Android programs in it every week.
The latest list of malware has been compiled by Roxane Suau, which includes six titles. These programs have been installed more than 200,000 times without any special innovation.
- Convenient Scanner 2
- Separate Doc Scanner
- Safety AppLock
- Push Message – Texting & SMS
- Emoji Wallpaper
- FingerTip GameBox
The top two titles on this list have much higher installation statistics. However, it is not possible to know exactly how many Android users have been deceived by these apps and what kind of financial damage has been inflicted on them. If you have one of these titles installed on your phone, you need to remove it as soon as possible.
Also, if a subscription has been purchased for you through these apps, you will need to unsubscribe. It should be noted that such programs are purchased through your account to subscribe to various services and the subscription fee will be deducted from your account without your knowledge.
Google has already removed these 6 malicious Android apps from the Play Store. Despite the recurrence of such events in recent years, Google needs to design a better mechanism to prevent malware from entering the Play Store.
