The Google Play Store is full of fake apps and cloned apps that hide viruses and steal sensitive information from our smartphone
Pay attention to the False Apps on the Google Play Store also Fortnite clones
Google goes down heavily and now the Play Store is starting to remove thousands of fake applications, which contain viruses and create problems to our smartphone. Unfortunately for many hackers and people skilled in disguising the app, the Play Store is fertile ground to publish fake applications created to deceive the user and capture sensitive data from our smartphone.
It is the case of the Fortnite game that is available for Android but will not be distributed by the Google Play Store and can only be downloaded from the servers of Epic Games, the software house that created the game.
In fact, many have published apps that can trick users into installing Fortnite but for a few hours, the Play Store has been cleaned up by these applications, and also a message appears above that Fortnite is not available on the Play Store.
In fact, if you try to search the Play Store for the provided game you will see the phrase “The Fortnite Battle Royale app from Epic Games, Inc is not available on Google Play.”.
A nice move by Google that wants to stem the false and deceptive apps on its app store and we hope that in the future the checks on the app have increased before ending up on the Play Store.
