25 Malacious Playstore apps has been removed by Google for creating fraudulent Facebook credentials

Android has more than five times the usage of smartphones compared to IOS. That’s the reason Google Playstore has more number of apps compared to Apple’s Appstore. Predictably, this makes malicious apps to be available in Playstore. However, Google reviewed and has taken prompt action on these apps for phishing Facebook credentials of the users.

As per the recent report, Google has identified 25 apps that created false login FB credentials of the users. French cyber-securiy agency Evina has submitted the report to Google in May. These 25 apps were involved in wallpaper apps, image and video editors, flashlight apps, games and file managers on the Google Play Store. The French agent also informed that these apps are present in Google Playstore for more than a year. After complete validation from Google end, Google has removed these apps from the Playstore in early June. These apps were also disabled from users’ smartphones and information is given through Play Protect.

Here is the list of apps removed by Google in Playstore:
