Delete These Malicious Android Apps Right Now
The Google Play store is full of malicious Android apps that have even been downloaded in the millions and Google is to blame for not screening these apps enough.
These sketchy apps have been committing ad-fraud amidst taking advantage of user permissions. These apps have been collecting user data and sending it to China but failing to inform users why they are doing this.
Most of these apps were developed by Do Global, a Chinese app developer that claims more than 800 million monthly active users on its platforms.
According to what buzzfeed reported, At least six of DO Global’s apps, which together have more than 90 million downloads from the Google Play store, have been fraudulently clicking on ads to generate revenue… and at least two of them contain code that could be used to engage in a different form of ad fraud, according to findings.
