Last month, Google identified 25 malicious apps on Google Play That Stole Facebook login information and removed them from Google Play. The malicious apps were created by the same developer, Rio Reader LLC, and the apps had been downloaded more than 2.34 million times before they were removed. Alev Akkoyunlu, Turkey Operations Director of Bitdefender Antivirus, which protects more than 500 million users around the world, warns that users should definitely delete these applications from their devices.

Malicious apps that mimicked legitimate apps like Step counters, photo editing, video editing, wallpaper, flashlights, file managers and mobile games were sharing the same malicious code that caused Facebook users ' login information to be stolen. Most of the apps appear to have been created in 2019, with downloads ranging from 10,000 to 500,000 Dec. This means that apps have time to collect the credentials of many Facebook users. Google has been removing adware or unsafe apps from its platform since Christmas. While not all fake apps are discovered and removed in time, Android users can play an important role in spotting them.

Step counts, photo editing, video editing, wallpaper, flashlight and applications such as file managers that can be developed outside of the principal objectives of voicing Flame Turkey Bitdefender operations director Akkoyunlu, other security weaknesses of these applications in the background he could stresses. “Next time you want to download an app, pay attention to the comments and the number of downloads.” Alev Akkoyunlu, who says that most professional-looking apps with four or five-star comments, told in a word, may actually have been developed for another purpose, warning that these apps should be deleted immediately and Facebook passwords changed.

Facebook and Google login information using unknown applications using the connection does not find very reliable stating Alev Akkoyunlu, “cyber attackers are very talented in this regard and applications very well one-on-one mimicking users ' Facebook account passwords can be seized. Although opening a new account for many people is a difficult process, I recommend creating a new account and using different passwords for these accounts, thinking about the security problems that we will experience later. Keeping many different and powerful passwords in mind can be quite difficult. Considering that a person has an average of 15 accounts, I recommend that they try a password manager such as Bitdefender Password Manager."it's in his statements.
