Beware: these 35 applications have malicious software and it is recommended to delete them

The Google Play Store has various protections to restrict apps that consist of malware , but sometimes scammers try different ways to inject apps infected with this malware into the store. Something similar happened this time.

According to technology and cybersecurity company Bitdefender, dangerous malware has been found in popular Android apps . Now, if you have any of them on your phone, remove it immediately.

How to detect malicious apps

The cybersecurity firm identified 35 malicious apps on the Play Store that tricked users into downloading them.

According to the report, once the user installs the app, its name changes and the app icon remains hidden on the device.

The idea behind these malicious activities is to deliver annoying advertisements and generate revenue through them. What’s worse is that developers run these ads through their own framework, which bypasses the protections implemented by Android.
