Many developers end up using their knowledge to create illegal monitoring mechanisms. Therefore, they benefit from the supposed anonymity to create programs capable of stealing data and promoting mass leaks. One of the ways to minimize these risks is to be aware of applications that are installed in the Apple Store and Play Store.

Documents issued by cybersecurity companies have been appearing frequently in recent months. Last Friday, the 23rd, a group of experts released another fraud report. This time the Apple Store and the Google Play Store underwent an audit, in which adware, that is, ads with viruses that track accounts, were identified.
More sophisticated cyber attacks
Human Security, the company responsible for the analysis, showed that the problem is not in the programs themselves, but in the advertisements. Part of these advertisements were done in a hidden way, causing the advertiser himself to be deceived as well. Despite exposing the brand, when someone clicked, they were directed to a suspicious website or just made the ID visible to third parties.
Data theft wave
The internet is a space that requires care, otherwise your privacy will be put at risk. From personal information, scammers are able to obtain financial advantages by stealing. Adware represents the third wave of an advertising fraud invasion, known as ”Scylla” and started in 2019, reaching about 13 million people around the world.
More than 75 applications were excluded from the Play Store and the Apple Store, however, get to know some apps that are on this list and always search for the origin of the downloads made on your smartphone.
