Stalker apps on Google Play removed

A total of seven stalker apps have been removed by Google from the Play Store, with a number of them disguised as tools to track children or employees. The truth is that they can be used to stalk anyone, a fact around 130,000 users that installed them have come to realise.

Designed for stalking in mind, these apps do more than just give away your location, as it also accesses the victim’s contacts, SMS and call history. Of course, this requires that the stalker have physical access to the device. Once that happens, the stalker needs only to download and install the app from Google Play. The app will then ask the stalker for their email address and password. A few tweaks here and there and everything is done.

The discovery was made by Avast, where it reported four of the seven offending apps to Google. Down the line, another three were discovered, all of which are now gone.
