Three fraudulent applications were just deleted from Google's Play Store. Magic Photo Lab – Photo Editor, Blender Photo Editor-Easy Photo Background Editor, and Pix Photo Motion Edit 2021 are among the Android applications available. These applications, according to Google, were stealing personal information and money from users. Despite the fact that the applications are no longer available on the Play Store, Google advises users to delete them immediately from their devices.
According to Kaspersky, all three apps were exploiting Facebook logins to deceive users and get access to their bank accounts. "Login with Facebook" is a popular option offered by numerous apps and online portals. Many people choose this option in order to avoid having to create a new account and save time. According to Kaspersky, these applications were accessing users' credit information and personal information via their sign-in data.
How can users stay safe with such apps?
