Android has been serving the customer for many years with exciting apps in the Google Play Store. We never really consider the negative aspects of these apps as we too busy enjoying them. But some of these apps contain harmful adware, and it’s time you delete them from your phone.
It’s sad to hear that android users are not having a good week. This troublesome new hack has been the greatest downfall of android. To add more to the horror, some of these disguise themselves in certified apps. They have been fooling enthusiastic android users for a while now, and the customers are not satisfied. As consumers, it’s our responsibility to be aware of the attractive but useless apps prevailing in the market.
So, you need to take a moment and see if you have downloaded any of the following apps and get rid of it as soon as possible!
It may feel aesthetic to use this app during the Christmas season, but don’t get fooled by it. The app wants you to surprise your family and friends with customized videos. It no denies that the settings of the app are funny, but you may have a bigger surprise waiting for you. The app fails to locate faces accurately, and there isn’t even an option to save the video. Customers are not happy with low-quality production and unexpected glitches. It inevitably invites damaging viruses.
Flash on calls and messages
This app has officially been proven to be a waste of space. Every time you open the app, it fails to comply with the device while showing a fake error message. It may be flashy, but that’s all it is; don’t get deceived by this non-functioning app.
Read QR code
These QR codes are a risk to the security and also the safety of your device. These codes are to be small and harmless patterns with a printed surface, but they aren’t trustworthy anymore. It also has come to the understanding of many android users that they infiltrate the device and introduce dangerous viruses. Just uninstall it right away!
Find your phone: Whistle
This app will immediately respond to you when you whistle, and everyone is curious to try this excellent app. It may be easy and fast to find your phone, but it doesn’t work when their advertisement feels more like a prank. The app refuses to recognize the voice and picks up unwanted background frequencies. Also, your google assistant is attentively listening to your conversations. Get rid of this app today!
Although the app promises to be a lightweight green cleaning software, it isn’t true. Their colorful skin replacement scheme looks exciting, but it’s of no use as it fails to perform its primary cleaning function. You shouldn’t be tempted to download this just because it has low storage space.
Although it sounds absurd, you can install this app to paste many photos on the background to change the photo backgrounds. It’s hilariously fun with its waterfall photo backgrounds, beach backgrounds, forest backgrounds, live mountain backgrounds, etc. How can you go wrong with an app as simple as this? It’s annoying.
Auto Cut Out Pro
This app provides a tempting opportunity to create photos with amazing background images. It guarantees to make you a “celebrity” with multiple effects to make your picture as realistic. But sadly, it is infected with infinite advertisements. It’s impossible to use this app smoothly, and you need to find a better editing app right now.
The app seems pretty handy to manage your finance and control your spending habits. But expenses percentage bar is not as useful to keep proper track of our expenditures. It feels like a scam without an appropriate tracking system and with vague results. And once you install it, it’s impossible to get rid of it.
The Artifact is an exclusive one-dimensional code and QR scanning equipment. It calls the phone camera to your mobile phone with regards to the client software and QR code individual application. It says to have an exceptional scan function and is quick to find records. But with zero reviews, this is a skeptical app, and I wouldn’t advise anyone to install it.
The idea of a right image processing app sounds exciting. You can achieve surreal photographic images with proper manipulation and improvised editing skills. Unfortunately, this app fails to do so. It lacks the essential ability to display the app and suddenly stops working. This constant crash has pissed off the customers long enough, and it was time to get rid of it permanently.
What’s our say?
However, these apps are sneaky as they hide in tablets and smartphones. To get rid of them entirely is a hassle. But thankfully, the British security firm called Sophos made reports about the misconduct of these apps. They have been successful in naming and shaming the apps. Also, a perfect solution has been established to address the issue. It enables you to check your Play Store downloads and figure out if you ever have installed a malicious app. TechRadar has also been critical about this situation. If you suspect an app is hiding, it’s an icon on the app store follow these simple steps. Tap on settings and then Apps and Notifications.
Similarly, the apps also change their icon picture to fool the customers and trick them into thinking the apps are “important” and essential. Some apps in disguise are “Google Play Store,” “Update,” “Back Up,” and “Time Zone Service.” But luckily, we have Sophos to the rescue, as it would be complicated to detect the dangerous apps.
Thankfully, Sophos is successful in removing these cancerous apps from the Google Play Store. Before downloading any app, the android users need to be careful while scouring through the reviews. The aggressive advertisements of these apps aren’t trustworthy. You need to make sure you check Google’s marketplace beforehand. If you get a hint of strange activities before downloading it’s wise to step down. Trust me, your phone will thank you in the future!
