6 'Dangerous' Android apps removed from Play Store and you should delete too.
Deal Expired
Attn Android Users.. Specially VPN users..

Highlights:

  • Recently, a popular app called Camscanner was caught for shipping with an advertising library containing a malicious module in a recent version and was removed from Google Play.
  • Out of the six apps, four are VPN apps—HotSpotVPN, Free VPN Master, Secure VPN and CM Security Applock AntiVirus while the other two are camera apps- Sun Pro Beauty Camera and Funny Sweet Beauty Selfie Camera.
  • The ads used to continue to run in the background, interrupting users and also drained the battery of the device.

Thanks bro for the appreciation! innocent

Have seen a couple of deals here in recent times about CamScanner and thought to share for those who are not aware. Although they claim their pro version is safe, looking at the severity of cases, nothing can be trusted with them. Hope NOONE purchased that buggy piece of junk.

The safest option. point_up_2 plus1

Besides, some phones like Asus have their own editors. OEM editors are always recommended!
