Dangerous apps on Google Play Store are not that uncommon. Despite the best efforts of the search giant, malicious apps often sneak in. Earlier this year, Google announced that it removed as many as 700,000 bad apps from the Play Store during the year 2017. This year too researchers from security firms like Symantec, ESET and Check Point have warned about hidden app malware on Google Play Store. While some of these apps disguise themselves as utility apps, others come in the garb of security apps. There are also others that claim to be games, education or cryptocurrency apps. To trick users, hackers usually hide their existence on victims’ devices by removing their icons from home screen. Many of these apps forcefully redirects victims to install another malicious app on the Play Store once it has been launched.

As we are about to enter the second half of the year 2018, here’s a look at the list of unsafe Android apps that researchers have found on Google Play Store this year. These apps pose a risk to Android smartphone users data and need to be uninstalled.
