Extremely popular apps on Google Play are dangerous.

We may appear to have written about them a lot recently, but the explanation is simple. This is the fourth such piece of information in the previous three weeks. And it's difficult to disregard these realities.

Another group of harmful apps is gaining popularity in the Google Play Store. They've already been downloaded over 10 million times. And it is a large number of downloads that is causing concern. You have most certainly installed one of these applications. If this is the case, you should get rid of it as quickly as possible.

One thing is evident from the list above. A number of programs attempt to be viable alternatives to well-known and tested solutions. For instance, different picture editors or keyboards. We already have high-quality tools on the market, therefore it's puzzling why individuals seek alternatives and install untrusted apps on their cellphones.

Of course, when Google discovers potentially hazardous programs in its app store, it eliminates them. This happens all the time. The user who has already installed the program, on the other hand, still has it on their phone and is not notified in any manner. This implies that even if the application can no longer be downloaded and hence cannot be enlarged further, it can still create significant issues on the devices on which it is installed.

This is especially significant with this batch of apps, which are installed on at least 10 million cellphones. And that is already a pretty respectable foundation for unethical behavior.
