Title: Google is removing eight new Joker apps from the Play Store

description: Android smartphones and malware attacks have a ten-year history. Due to the fact that applications are very easily available for any hacker attacks, there are more and more. Many Joker malware-infected applications made their way to the Google Play Store this year. Fortunately, Google identified a list of such apps and removed them from the Play Store permanently. What did the identified and removed applications include? Identified and removed applications included SMS messages, camera scanners, and wallpaper applications. The SMS or messaging applications affected by Joker malware are: Auxiliary Message, Fast Magic SMS, Go Messages, Super Messages, and Super SMS.
Google has also removed the Free Cam Scanner and Element Scanner apps along with the Travel Wallpaper app. We remind you that removing malicious applications from your phone should be the first way to protect your device and personal data.

How to stay safe? What should you watch out for? Joker malware is a type of Trojan or fleeceware.
Google has been hunting for all Bread apps that contain Joker and other malware for a long time. Removing all of these apps from the Play Store isn't the only line of defense Google has.


Google is committed to stopping malware, Trojans, and other viruses. It is worth being very careful when downloading applications from the Internet. Even an application that has a large number of positive comments may be infected. There are many third-party applications out there and it is sometimes difficult to guess their authenticity. However, it is always recommended that you download applications from trusted sources and read all reviews before attempting to install the application.
It is not worth giving unnecessary permissions to read SMS or calls to third-party applications.
