Google Play Store is considered to be the safest source for downloading apps for Android smartphones. But there are many such apps listed on the store which can put your mobile security at risk. However, Google checks its App Store, and action is taken from time to time. However, there are many such malicious apps on the platform that can prove to be dangerous for you.
Some dangerous apps on the Play Store were recently banned by Google. These apps were being used by hackers to trap users and steal their personal details for personal gain. If such apps are also present on your phone, then delete them without delay.
Digital security company Avast recently found flaws in over 19,000 apps on the platform with a critical misconfiguration that could potentially leak users’ personal information.
Avast said it exposed more than 19,300 Android apps to the public due to misconfiguration of the Firebase database of users’ data. Firebase is a tool that Android developers can use to store user data.
