On Google Play, there are quite a few applications that just disguise themselves as a normal program, but actually steal user data. Recently, the Internet giant has removed 25 such applications from the catalog, the total number of downloads of which exceeds two million. However, the fact that they are no longer on Google Play does not mean that they are deleted in your smartphones.
Resource PhoneArena led the list of malicious applications. There are pedometer programs, wallpaper applications, video editors, games. Many of them have been distributed through Google Play for years, and the two most popular have gained over a million downloads.
All these applications, when launched, opened a fake Facebook login page. The user entered his username and password, which were eventually sent to the attackers.
