Danger of smartphone app
You can find a detailed list of the 30 apps surveyed below. Particularly negative candidates for the test require more permissions than the user actually needs, and forbid user data, but turn on the camera without sending or asking the user data to the manufacturer. This is also an unknown app. The best manufacturer “Meitu”, hidden behind several iOS and Android applications, has more than 300 million apps installed.
Cyber news experts estimate that these 30 malicious apps, which may contain malware, have been installed more than 1.4 billion times on smartphones. This number is hard to see purely through the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Nevertheless, the app is still idle on many devices and can cause damage in the background.

In the best case, you can scan your device with a virus scanner and find the software in the following downloads.
