Google removed two Android applications that combined were installed over 1.5 million times. Applications made money through smartphones of users with pop-up ads appearing throughout the system. Apparently it doesn't look anything serious right? These are just ads to show. The problem is, these ads cause a problem with the component they most need to use their smartphone: the battery. Yes, autonomy fell a lot and that yes no one likes.
Google Play Store: If you have these two applications remove them now!
The work of both applications was discovered by the company Wandera (via ZDNet). That said, the Sun Pro Beauty Camera had over 1 million installations, while the Funny Sweet Beauty Selfie Camera got 500,000 downloads. If you have installed any of these applications on your Android smartphone, you should uninstall now.
These malicious applications are usually not easy to find or remove. In fact, the best idea is to go to settings, application list and remove.
These two applications, considering it to be adware, were removed by Google after 1.5 million combined installations.
Once installed, the Sun Pro Beauty Camera will run full screen ads even if the app is not open. However, this only happens after the user applies a filter to a photo and downloads the photo.
However, it was not just Google that these applications were malicious, nor the security firm that discovered them. Comments on apps read things like: “Junk, please don't download this app. It's just ads, that's all, nothing more. ” Another reports that “… the ads keep coming up.” A third says: “I didn't find anything useful and the ads were everywhere”.
In fact, when we see an application with comments like this, it's better to stay away. Unfortunately this is not the only case and there are many more applications of its kind scattered around!
