Google deleted 38 apps with fake ads from Play Store

Google has once again taken 38 apps from the Play Store in big action. Google has taken this decision after the report was published in a research paper. The report said that most of these apps were selfie and beauty selfie. All these apps were showing the ads meaningless to the people. Apart from this, these apps were also showing malware advertisements to people. The downloading number of these apps is in crores.

These apps were informed by White Ops and then ZDNet first published this report. The report states that most apps are created by the same developer's group. According to a research report, 21 of the 38 apps were first published on the Google Play-Store in January last year. All these apps were self-contained filters, but due to malware behaviour, all these apps were removed from the Play Store a few days later. Within just three weeks, these apps were downloaded by more than five lakh users.

In September 2029, the developers published another 15 apps on the Play Store. Then in November, two new Apps were published, namely, Rose Photo Editor & Selfie Beauty Camera and Beauty Camera & Photo Editor, which also came on the Play Store. Most of these apps had packers which were in the app as APKs. Most developers are using this packers technology to hide malware in their apps. Arabic characters are used in the app's source code to hide their malware apps.
