Recently, Apple users debated the quality of apps on Google’s operating system. It’s noted that full-screen advertising is one reason why many people choose an iPhone over Android. A caption on Reddit reads: “I’m glad Apple doesn’t allow full-screen ads from outside the app.”
The poster also explained that they checked an app claiming to be “phonebooster” on their aunt’s Android phone, only to find that it was the culprit for several full-screen ads. According to the post, the app was installed from the Google Play Store because the APK installation was blocked.
As a result, many iPhone users have joined in to confirm that Android is flooded with fake booster apps (it’s only entering the Google Play store to show spammers with full-screen ads). It’s a way for developers with bad goals to generate revenue, forcing users to view and click on ads that appear on their devices.
In response, one user said: “It’s almost like Android is the Internet Explorer of a phone.” “
It is well known that Internet Explorer was Microsoft’s default Windows browser, and before it was replaced by Microsoft Edge in Windows 10, it was often targeted by adware, pop-up ads and malware, and subjected to malicious downloads and browsers Hijacked. On devices that lack security software, Internet Explorer ends up running ads on loads (occasionally during browsing sessions) and hijacks settings, such as user-defined home pages.
According to Data compiled by Statista, 92.33% of malware infected with Android apps in 2018 was Trojans, while password Trojans were only 4.18% behind.
Google’s data, on the other hand, shows that content downloaded from the Google Play Store is becoming more secure, and apps installed outside the store remain a major threat.
Google says the number of dangerous applications has increased by 100 percent in 2018 after it included click-fraud applications in the potentially harmful application (PHA) group. However, if these applications are not included, the total decreases by 31%. However, 28% of apps installed outside the Google Play Store have spread some kind of malware.
