No doubt, the Internet has made our life so easier that we can do many of our tasks staying at home. We can do online shopping, can pay bill staying at home. Also, we can download many of the apps free from the internet usually from Google Play Store. However, one of the dark sides of using the internet is that nothing is safe. Almost every day we came to know about a data breach or virus attack or some other malware attack. Just recently, almost 29 Malware filled Camera Beauty and Filter Apps found on Play Store.

Google Removed 29 Malware filled Camera Beauty and Filter Apps from Play Store

Security firm Trend Micro has found 29 “beauty camera” and camera filter apps in the Google Play Store loaded with malware inside. These apps are mostly used in Asia and helped to enhance selfies and customize photos. However, these apps also showed full screen ads when users unlocked their phones. One of the ads, when tapped, downloaded an online porn player that didn’t work even after payment from the user was accepted.

Not only this, some of the apps try phishing techniques in order to get personal information from users. Some apps get information through a rigged contest that always let the device owner win. To claim the prize, the “winner” was asked for certain personal information. Other camera filter apps would allow someone to upload a picture to the developer’s server to enhance. But instead of getting a final post-enhancement image, the user would receive a fake update prompt in nine languages. The app collected the photos uploaded, possibly to use on fake social media accounts.

Those who have downloaded such app can immediately delete the app. Good news is that Google has already removed these malware filled apps. But if you want to download any Beauty and Filter Apps, you can download any. But it is better to check the comments to get to know the better idea about the app.
