White Ops, a security company, detected malicious apps on the Play Store and reported them to Google. They suggested that these apps be cleared from the Play Store immediately.

These apps were mostly beauty and camera apps. Once installed, they flooded the victims screen with tons of ads and often redirects to many websites. Some of them even prevent users from uninstalling them. They did so by hiding the app icon from the home screen.

Why You Should Take Action Now

Users run the risk of falling victim to such serious threats as identify theft, password and codes theft or a hacker taking full control of one’s device and having access to all accounts you are logged into (e.g. Facebook, email accounts). To prevent the loss of valuable stuff on your phone (i.e photos, documents, etc) or access to sensitive information, these apps must leave your phone now!

If your phone is constantly bombarded with adverts that take over your screen, this might be as a result of a malicious app you have installed without realizing. In such a case, try to remember when the problem started, then check from the Play Store the apps u installed just before it started. These apps are likely to be the cause of the annoying problem.
