Google removes 85 malicious apps from Play Store: Check out the list here

Technology giant Google has today removed 85 malicious apps from its Android Play Store after it was found by security researchers that these apps are a disguise of an adware family. On the Play Store, these apps were available as games, TV, remote control and more. In fact, an app among the ones that have been downloaded – Easy Universal TV Remote – had been downloaded over 5 million times.

The issue with these apps was first reported by Trend Micro, where a researcher was quoted saying, “This adware is capable of displaying full-screen ads, hiding itself, monitoring a device’s screen unlocking functionality, and running in the mobile device’s background.”

According to Trend Micro, all of these apps have been downloaded together over nine million times. The list of apps that have been banned has surfaced online. Here, we list down a few of them so that you can be sure that you don’t have any of them installed on your smartphone:
