From Samsung to Huawei, Android smartphones are among the most popular portable devices in the world.

But if you’re using an Android device, a new warning may cause you to re-evaluate the apps you’ve installed.

Check Point researchers warned Android users of 56 “dangerous” applications containing malware dubbed “Tekya”.

Worryingly, 24 of the infected apps targeted children, while the remaining 32 were utility apps, including cooking apps, translators, and calculators (scroll down for the full list of apps).

In a blog on results, Check Point researchers explained, “In order to commit mobile advertising fraud, malware mimics user actions to click on ads and banners from agencies like Google AdMob, AppLovin ‘, Facebook and Unity. . “



Hands at the computer

While Google has now removed apps from the Google Play Store, the results point out that many dangerous apps have slipped through the gaps.

The researchers said, “There are almost 3 million apps available in the store, with hundreds of new apps downloaded daily, making it difficult to verify the security of each app.

“This means that users cannot rely solely on Google Play security measures to ensure the protection of their devices. “
