Google recently removed 13 apps with more than 20 million downloads from Play Store. The apps were removed after security researchers detected malicious activity that could cause the Android devices they ran on to drain batteries faster and use more mobile data than normal. Researchers from McAfee Mobile Research Team identified these 13 apps that had malicious code. The apps included Flashlight (Torch), QR readers, Camara, Unit converters and Task managers. When opened, these apps secretly downloaded additional code that caused them to perform fraud in the background. Google has removed all these 13 apps from the Play Store. However, Google deleting them does not remove them from users’ smartphones. So, it is important that Android smartphone users who have these apps in their devices delete them right away.
