Android alert: more than 150 applications put smartphones at risk! See the list

Unfortunately, we are more than used to receiving this type of news, with the Google Play Store increasingly infested with applications that put its users at risk. If you have an Android smartphone, it is important to remember that you must be very careful with the applications / games that you install on your mobile phone, as you are always subject to putting your information at risk.

In this specific case, the team of researchers at White Ops conducted an investigation that found more than 150 ad spamming applications for millions of users. Even though the adware in question is being used only to display unwanted ads on smartphones, free access to smartphones can always open the door to more delicate situations.

Android applications adware google play store

According to the published report, all apps in the list below have already been removed from the Google Play Store. However, as in previous situations, all users who have the applications installed on their mobile phone, will need to remove them manually.

Combined, these applications have more than 10 million installations.

Always see user comments, as they usually alert you to the case of being an unreliable application.
