The Google Play Store can even be a safe place to install applications, but there are always some that go undetected by the tight security of the Mountain View company.
That’s why we constantly write updates from the Play Store (which you can install here) to make sure you’re as secure as possible when installing applications from the Apps store.
Today there are 9 more applications that we have to mention. All these applications wanted to know something more about you and sent the information to China. It was not ascertained who received this information, but suspicions of the report indicate that the Chinese government might have something to do with it.
That is, a simple application of a flashlight should not require any information from you. After all, the main purpose of the application is to turn on the flash LED of the smartphone.
Here are the 9 apps that were in the Google Play Store and you need to uninstall them now:
- Selfie Camera
- Total Cleaner
- Smart Cooler
- RAM Master
- AIO Flashlight
- Omni Cleaner
- Emoji Flashlight
- Samsung TV Remote Control (developed by Peel Technologies, Inc.)
Although apps have been removed from the Google Play Store, users who have it installed will continue to use Apps on their smartphones. That is, the only way to make sure you do not have to see the app name is to confirm on all your Apps and uninstall as soon as possible if you have them.
In short, while the Google Play Store is reliable, we must be extra careful installing apps. Google is getting better every day with security on your Android, but we’re still far from perfect.
