There Are Dozens Of Fake Navigation Apps In Play Store | Having Extra Adds On It

First research by ESET Lukas Stefanko, all app he tested were navigation apps and all the navigation app has more than 1 million downloads each and if we total the sum of download it will be more than 49 million.

Unhappily, despite these claims that these apps can help users map their journeys or carry tools like compass or speedometer, every app can work on Google Maps or its related APIs to do the actual work.

The real difference between Google Map and fake navigation app is the redesigned front page of the app with the help of UI that acts as a way of serving ads, keeping in mind the fact that the app was actually working alongside Google’s data, and the most dangerous thing in this fake app is it asks for the access to SMS, phone call logs and other services that map actually does not need, and get user personal data which can be dangerous.

The most disturbing and irritating part in the fake app is they are having 4 stars reviews. They get these 4 stars review with the help of fake review agents. And by watching 4 stars review user get cheated, he thinks that this app has good review and they install it. But happily, these apps are in violation of Google Maps’ terms of use which does not allow the users to re-distribute or design replacements for Google Maps main Services.

Till now, Stefanko has found more than 20 fake navigation app. In conclusion, we can only say that there are only a few useful companies that can actually help you to navigate such as Apple, Google, and some other company.
