Warning for Android users! These 21 apps are very dangerous for your smartphone, see list
Cybersecurity firm Avast has issued a warning against 21 adware gaming apps available on the Google Play Store. According to the cyber security company, these 21 apps are part of the Hidden Family Trojan.
According to media reports, the company said that Google is currently investigating reports of adware gaming apps. The data provided to Sensor Tower states that these 21 apps have been downloaded about 8 million times from the store. The cyber security company claims that promotional content for some of these adware gaming apps has been found on YouTube and other social media platforms.
After downloading these apps from the Google Play Store, these apps do not show the things that are being promoted. But there is a need to fill these users’ phones with unnecessary ads. It is said that this type of adware contains less dangerous malicious code than other malware. According to media reports, these apps are as follows.
It has been downloaded 8 million times so far
- The app and games have been downloaded about 8 million times so far, according to Censor Tower statistics. Some users said that their focus was on the download page of some of these apps through YouTube ads, which claimed to be a better and different game than existing games. After downloading the games, the smartphone was flooded with advertisements.
- Adware developers have been using social media channels for a long time. This time the user reports that they were targeted for ads promoting games on YouTube. Adware spread through Tiktok in September, said Jacob Wavra, a threat analyst at Avast.
Now it’s hard to remove it from the device
This type of software presents itself as a secure and useful application, but they display unwanted ads. Its icon is hidden and ads are displayed with relevant appearances so that users cannot remove it in the smartphone. So it becomes difficult to identify and remove.
