Google removes 30 applications from Play Store, you must remove them too

New Delhi : Google has removed 30 applications from Play Store after it found that they have malicious malware. These applications will not be available for download from now onwards, and it is advised to over 20 million users who have already downloaded the applications that they must remove them for safety.

Among the 30+ apps, it’s the third-party selfie apps that have found to be most fraudulent. As per security researchers WhiteOps, the apps have the ability to bombard users with unwanted ads and redirect them to websites without ever clicking on a link. It should also be noted that in some cases, it was nearly “impossible” for users to delete these apps once downloaded.

Here is the list of applications which have been removed from Play Store:

  • Yoriko Camera
  • Solu Camera
  • Lite Beauty Camera
  • Beauty Collage Lite
  • Beauty and Filters camera
  • Photo Collage and beauty camera
  • Gaty Beauty Camera
  • Pand Selife Beauty Camera
  • Cartoon Photo Editor and Selfie Beauty Camera
  • Benbu Seilfe Beauty Camera
  • Pinut Selife Beauty and Photo Editor
  • Mood Photo Editor and Selife Beauty Camera
  • Rose Photo Editor and Selfie Beauty Camera
  • Selife Beauty Camera and Photo Editor

The aforementioned applications have over 20 million downloads already.

WhiteOps explained in its websites that these apps render fraudulent advertising in users’ devices. “What these apps all have in common – besides their fraudulent tactics – is their focus on beauty. Most purport to be selfie apps that add beauty filters to users’ pictures, while at the same time showing ads out of context and making it nearly impossible to remove the apps themselves.”
