PIP Pic Camera Photo Editor removed from Google Play Store
The number of applications that contain malware in the Android operating system is increasing day by day. Finally, the application called PIP Pic Camera Photo Editor, which was downloaded more than a million times, was removed from the Google Play Store.
It was not disclosed what kind of trojan or malware the app had, but it is said to have stolen Facebook credentials, including usernames and passwords. This allows hackers to access target users’ accounts, capture important data and even send deceptive messages to other users to scam them.
IP Pic Camera Photo Editor has now been removed from the Google Play Store. However, the danger remains for users who previously downloaded the app. If this is the case, you should change your Facebook password immediately.
This malware, which is a malware that preys on Facebook credentials, was detected by Dr. Web. Unfortunately, this is not the only application that threatens user security. Wild & Exotic Animal Wallpaper, ZodiHoroscope, PIP Camera 2022 and Magnifier Flashlight not only reduce phone battery life, but also display unwanted ads and make unauthorized changes to the target device.
