We rely on our Play Store or our App Store to cut down on the malicious apps that we add to our phone but some do sneak through.
Here’s what to look for:
1: Typos – this is the most typical error that hackers make!
2: Bad Grammar – this is always a bad sign!
3: Check the number of downloads – does it seem consistent with the app?
4: Permissions – is the app asking for more permissions that it should realistically need?
If you see any of these, don’t download the app! It’s a fake app and will cause damage to your phone and data.
And as always, if we can be of assistance, please feel free to give us a call at 603-524-1400, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or link up with one of our technicians on live chat at www.samedaycomputers.com!
