85 Free Android Apps You Need To Uninstall Right Now

- Advertisement -

Building Android apps have gotten so easy nowadays that with the right tools, you can get one running in no time. Thanks to this, we have varieties of apps performing different functions on the Google PlayStore. This also means that anyone with ulterior motives can easily build an app to rip us off and maybe steal data.

Before now, getting your apps outside the PlayStore meant you could easily download a malware bundled as a legit app, but now, these guys have found their way into the PlayStore.

Posing as legitimate apps on the PlayStore, when installed, they discreetly install adware, read your screen information and bombard you with ads. Most times, these apps have negative reviews on the Google PlayStore but that has not stopped them from being downloaded over 9 million times.

They take on the guise of different games, TV apps, news apps and remote control apps and act as a front for the vicious software which attacks your device.

One particular culprit, ‘Easy Universal TV Remote’, which promises to help users control a TV with the smartphone has been found to contain the offending malware. To make matters worse, it has already been downloaded more than five million times

These ads are usually difficult to swipe off and they work in the background draining battery, processing power and data. They can be used by illegal crypto-miners who target processing powers on gadgets to fuel their illegal mining.

While the apps have been removed from the Google PlayStore, it is advised that you uninstall them if you have them installed.
