In 2 months 112 risky Android apps deleted from Google Play store: Check this list, remove them from phone – India Today

While the debate on whether Android is better or iOS may never end, it is true that Android is comparatively more vulnerable to bugs and malware than iOS, thanks to its open-source nature. Apple follows a more stringent vetting process for apps available on its App store to avoid malware while Google is lenient in its ways. This is the reason why mobile malware targets Android more than iOS.

“While the majority of developers have their audience’s best interest at heart, some bad apps and malicious developers do attempt to evade detection and enter the Play Store to put people and their devices in harm’s way,” Google notes in one of its blog posts. According to the tech giant, the global reach of Google Play makes the platform an easy target for the malware attacks.

The company says it is trying to make Play Store a safer place by adopting new machine learning models and techniques that identify bad apps and prevent developers from repeating such apps on the app store. Google in 2017 alone removed more than 700,000 apps for violating the Google Play policies. The year 2018 was no different. Hundreds of malware apps were brought to the notice of Google.

We have sorted a list of all the bad apps that Google has deleted in the past two months. These apps are essentially adware or click fraud. They infect your device and cause damage to your phone like battery drainage or hanging of the system. Check out the list to ensure you are not using any of them.
