UNSAFE APPS WHICH WE SHOULD NOT DOWNLOAD! - FRIENDOTECH

Android is the most used OS in the world and Google play has million of apps which let the users to download thousands of apps. But somewhere in between downloading these apps, we download those apps which risk our security to a very high extent. These application can be spam or can have an eye on your personal or private information.
UNSAFE APPS WHICH WE SHOULD'NT DOWNLOAD

To prevent you from downloading these types of apps, we did a proper research and founded those apps. Here are the list of those apps:

i) WEBSITE TRAFFIC BOT: This application should be considered as spam. Although it is verified by Google to be published on Google Play but it's not less than spam. It promise you to send the traffic to your website which can be dangerous for your website because Google will identify these bots and can block your website or will stop indexing your website on their search engine.

Google search engine has a share of 75% in the search engine market, so if they will block you then you will lose almost 90% of the traffic which you will be getting from the web.

ii) APP BUCKS: This application is an earning application which promise users that they will earn money. When you visit the Google Play in search of this application, you'll find that this application has very good ratings and consequently you will download it but the reality is that they force you to rate them 5-star and users rate them because they give users a fake hope to earn $5 to rate them.

Also the users experience is not that good for this application. Google must be reviewing these types of application.

iii) BITCOIN FOR FREE: Another earning application! Nowadays Bitcoin is very popular and is much worthy which force people to buy or mine it. Many applications like this are there on the Google Play which give users a very bad experience. Users are complaining about this application. However, it doesn't force users to rate it like the above mentioned application, but it definitely give user a fake hope.

No comment on this app!

iv) MYCELIUM BITCOIN WALLET: Be aware! We have an article about some good Bitcoin wallet previously and now we found this one which is a reverse of those good wallets. Everything will be cleared by the below images itself.

Everything is clear from the above review.

v) UC BROWSER: One of the most popular browser worldwide, UC BROWSER. This browser has almost 500 million downloads and it is the only browser that seems to give tough competition to the legendary browser, GOOGLE CHROME which has 1 billion downloads. The problem in using UC browser is that it leaks your data to the country where it is developed. This browser is most used in China, India, Indonesia and other south Asian countries. In the research which was done on UC Browser by Citizenlab.org the researchers found that everything is being sent in the plain text and also has very weak encryption which can be cracked easily.

Few days ago, Google removed UC browser due to adopting MISLEADING and UNHEALTHY
methods of increasing installs which is strictly against the Google Play policy. However, UC browser returned to Google Play after 1 week but Google warned the developers. We should use Google Chrome instead.

vi) EVERY RAM CLEANER APPS: Few days ago, we wrote an article on FIXING BATTERY DRAIN ISSUES. You can read it here: FIX BATTERY DRAIN ISSUE!

These types of application will not only decrease your smartphone efficiency but also leak your private or personal data to other servers or other parties. So we must be aware from these types of
application, else you won't feel when bad becomes worse!

vii) PHONE HACKER SIMULATOR: This application has 1 million download on the Google Play. This hacker simulator has Bluetooth scanner that will detect all the Bluetooth devices nearby which can be hacked by this application, as said by the developers of this app. But the reality is totally different from it. The users review is something which can't be said in this small post. The developers should improve this application and fix all the issues, else Google won't leave any space for this application to stay on the Google play.

viii) ULTRA FAST CHARGING 5X: Nothing is wrong with this application but the reason why this application is mentioned here is because of its wrong advertisement. It promise that it'll charge your device 5 times faster than normal. Just think that "How any smartphone will support fast charging without having proper hardware in it?". No application can increase the charging speed of any smartphone until unless that smartphone has proper hardware to support fast charging.
