Google removed 85 apps, delete them from your smartphones too

Google has once again clamped down on dangerous apps. The company has removed 85 apps from the Play Store. Although the company did not do this by itself, but the security researchers reminded the company that these apps are dangerous. These apps were on the Google Play Store as game, TV and remote control simulator apps.

This case was first reported by Trend Micro Security Researchers. The Trend Micro Blog states, 'This adware is capable of showing full screen ads. Not only this, it keeps itself hydrated and also monitors the screen and unlocking feature of the device. It runs in the background of the mobile device.

According to this blogpost, this app has been downloaded more than 90 million times from the Google Play Store. One of these apps is Easy Universal TV Remote which has been downloaded 50 million times. Out of these 85 apps, this app has been downloaded the most frequently. Comments are also found on these apps on the Play Store. These apps belong to different developers and the apk public key certificate is also different. But the source code of all these apps is one.

Once you download any of these apps, they show full screen pop add and you will be asked to press different buttons to continue. Every new page has an advertisement. This will happen until it crashes. Some malware applications will disappear after appearing and you will not be able to find them.

Researchers have found another type of fake app that monitors screen unlock action and display. They do this by showing full page ads. Recently, the company removed 13 apps.

These are the list of apps which should not be in your phone-
