If you have installed these apps on your smartphone, you should delete them immediately because they contain a virus that can empty your account.

What can be found on online stores are apps that respond to many needs. Some more important than others, some funnier than others. From apps for following gym activities to those for creating stickers to send via social media, there’s everything.

There is malware in these apps and you need to remove them – Sjbeez

Unfortunately, however, reports continue to concern pieces of malicious software: apps that are built with the sole purpose of entering your mobile phone, taking possession of it and possibly emptying your bank account or convincing you to log in to platforms that hide dangers and pitfalls.

Adding an antivirus to your mobile device is a good way to keep these viruses away but not all of them are always identified in time. So check if you have any of these apps installed because they are a problem.

Poison smartphone app, delete them immediately

Criminals and scammers who move online rely on the lack of knowledge that the average internet user unfortunately has regarding the real dangers involved. There is no other way to explain how the many scams that target people of all ages who believe they have won prizes, are talking to some African prince or have found their soul mate are still possible. And to the scams that move through emails, there are obviously those that pass through scam sites and fake apps.

These apps should be deleted. Now. – Sjbeez

Lately, at least 10 have been reported which, built to resemble improved versions of other apps already present, have unfortunately been downloaded thousands of times, thus exposing thousands of devices and users to malware that can quickly empty bank accounts.

The apps to check are for example Privee Talk; MeetMe; Let’s Chat; Quick Chat; Rafaqat; Chit Chat; YohooTalk; TikTok; Hello Chat; Nidus; GlowChat. These are all apps that on paper should give you an improved experience compared to social media and instant messaging systems that they mimic but in reality, when they are installed, they release VajiraSpy-type malware.

The danger with this virus is that it essentially puts your device in the hands of those who control the malware. The criminals who distributed these apps can therefore access all the apps found on your mobile phone. Which essentially means that you are at the mercy of whoever can decide to log into your home banking and make a transfer or log into your PayPal account and instantly transfer all your money elsewhere.
