Google has officially removed Android apps that have committed major privacy violations. So far, the tech giant has removed nine apps from the Play Store after discovering that these apps were designed to steal Facebook’s login data. These apps had over 5.8 million apps and looked like your causal apps like ‘Daily Horoscope’ or ‘Trash Cleaner’.
Although Google has eliminated such harmful apps, the question here is how much security can be improved in the Play Store similar to Apple’s App Store which gives users more security and control over what they do in those apps. Users should not download such apps from the Play Store and attempt to download those that are verified and that have appropriate reviews.
