Android Users Need to Uninstall These 151 Apps immediately

Google has removed 151 scam apps from the Google Play Store, but if users have installed it previously, you need to uninstall these 151 Apps immediately.

The cybersecurity software company Avast recently identified these scam apps operating on the official Play Store. Avast has dubbed it the UltimaSMS Scam and it consists of 151 fake apps that have been downloaded over 10.5 million times in more than 80 different countries.

The apps disguise themselves as legitimate tools across multiple app categories including custom keyboards, QR code scanners, video and photo editors, spam call blockers, camera filters, and games. However, they all ultimately have the same aim of signing users up to premium SMS services.

Each app follows the same pattern: Once installed, the phone’s location, International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), and phone number are checked to discover the area code and language to use. Prompts then ask the user for their phone number and sometimes their email address, too. This information is then used to subscribe the user to premium SMS services without them realizing. The charges are typically $40 or more a month and it can take weeks or months for a user to realize.

Once an UltimaSMS app has achieved its goal it either stops working or offers more subscription options rather than the promised functionality it was downloaded for. The problem is, even if a user uninstalls the app at this point the premium subscriptions will continue to take money from their accounts.

Here are the list of those 151 Apps.
