Date: August 21, 2023

Researchers from McAfee have found 21 applications that conduct malicious activities, and Google has immediately deleted them from their app and play store.

Google has recently immediately banned 21 applications globally from its Playstore for conducting malicious activities. The research conducted by the R&D team of McAfee identified these 21 applications, which have a collective download count of over 2.5 Million.

It is said that McAfee has tracked these apps for malicious intent and has brought shocking revelations to light.

  • The applications can run advertisements in the background even when turned off or kept unused.
  • The applications drain a phone’s battery and mobile data even when the phone screen is off.

Further research is still going on to identify more potential threats from these 21 applications, but for now, Google has immediately removed them from Playstore. If you have any of the apps mentioned below installed, it’s high time to delete them immediately.

1 Baro TV

It’s a live TV app that allows you to access multiple international channels for free but at the cost of your phone’s battery life and mobile data even when you are not using it.

2 DMB App

It’s a digital distributor application for content in Europe, but it can drain the users' battery anywhere.

3 Jihosoft Mobile Recovery App

An application that lets you download free software for Android phones is ironically draining data from your device.

It’s not infamous for the quality of music you can download through it, but is now quite infamous for its malicious activities.

5 Music Downloader

It’s another one of those free music downloader apps that cost you your device’s safety.

6 Baro

A cross-border digital gifting app for those who don’t want to do the real thing that also takes away your phone’s actual data.

It will be tough to convince teenagers to remove this app just because it uses some data and our battery life without our consent.

An online streaming and gaming application with the capability to run ads even when you are not using it.
