Delete these Android apps from your phone immediately, as it's infected

In June, Doctor Web's malware lab discovered over 30 adware trojans from the Android.HiddenAds family, totaling more than 9,890,000 downloads. They were all incorporated into various applications, such as picture editing software, virtual keyboards, system tools and utilities, calling apps, wallpaper collecting apps, and so on.

To display adverts, some of them seek for permission to show windows over other programmes, while others ask users to add them to the battery-saving feature's exclusion list. Furthermore, in order to make it more difficult for users to spot malicious programmes in the future, trojans conceal their icons from the list of installed apps in the home screen menu—or replace them with less prominent ones. Take, for example, the icon named “SIM Toolkit”, which when selected, launches an eponymous system app for working with SIM cards—instead of the original app.

Here are the first 28 malicious apps provided by Doctor Web. These apps push intrusive ads, steal information, break into social media accounts, download malware, intercept messages and more.
