8 Android devices accused of being part of a bluff


There are rare days when there are no less positive news about Google's mobile operating system or its ecosystem. In addition to the malicious software available in various apps in recent weeks, there is now information that a set of 8 apps is involved in a fraudulent system to get money through advertising clicks.

Get to know the programs that are involved in this system.

There are 8 apps suspected of being involved in a bluff. According to the data, these apps add up to more than 2 billion installs and "sidestep" ad clicks to earn their commissions.

What apps are involved in bluff?

Clean Master, Security Master, CM Launcher, Kika Keyboard, Battery Doctor, Cheetah Keyboard, and CM Locker, belonging to the Chinese company Cheetah Mobile and the CM File Manager app belonging to the Kika Tech company, are the apps suspected of being part of this "new" system.

For example, the Clean Master app has been downloaded more than 1 million times. This app aims to clean the system.

The case is still quite recent and Google has already removed battery patches and CM Locker apps from the app store. On the side of Cheetah Mobile has already issued a statement saying that such a problem can be associated with a third party SDK. Kika Tech has already denied any intention to participate in fraudulent systems.
