Google recently removed up to 150 apps from the Play Store for privacy concerns. Again, Google has now removed three other apps that have several million subscribers. The company had revealed that removing these apps would benefit users. Let’s know about them.
The prohibited applications are “Magic Photo Lab – Photo Editor”, “Blender Photo Editor-Easy Photo Background Editor” and “Pics Photo Motion Edit 2021”. These apps have been banned from the Play Store.
The three apps, which were banned from the Google Play Store, stole users’ personal information and money. Security firm Kaspersky took a look at this and said Facebook logins steal users’ personal information and gain access to bank accounts.
The “Login with Facebook” button on many web services and applications is used to quickly authenticate users and allow them to use the service without creating another username and password. According to the security company, these apps used login data to steal login credentials and access users’ personal information.
How to protect yourself from these applications banned by Google?
Users who downloaded these apps need to manually remove them from their phone and also change their Facebook login details.
