Google deleted such 29 beauty App which can steal your data

Google has deleted 29 such beauty camera apps, which were sharing pornographic content and it was forwarding users to primarily steal data from phishing websites in India. According to a report by American cyber security firm Trend Micro, some of these apps were downloaded millions of times, a large number of downloads were made in Asia, mainly in India. Google has now deleted these apps from Play Store.

Trend Micro said, "The user who downloads this app will not be suspected of any wrongdoing unless he decides to delete that app." When users unlock their devices, the app will display different ads on full screen, which may contain some bad ads (fraudulent content or pornography), which will pop up through users' browsers.

According to the report, "During the analysis, we found a paid online pornography player, which was downloaded when clicked on a pop-up." None of these apps indicated that they are behind the ads, so it is difficult for the users to find out where they are coming from.
