Android is a great operating system, but it can be a bit overwhelming with the sheer number of apps available on the platform.
As you’ve probably realized by now, there are some bad apps out there that can do everything from collecting your personal data to draining your battery.
To make sure your devices are running at their best, McAffee cybersecurity has identified 16 applications with malware that were once available in the Google Play Store.
According to the cybersecurity firm McAffee, the sort of malware that these applications contain is a “Clicker” form of malware, which means that it has the ability to control the device of the victim and browse websites without the victim’s knowledge or consent.
