Currently, one of our greatest assets that we can lose is our data. I am thinking here of information such as place of residence, marital status, but also more sensitive information such as information about diseases, PESEL number, etc. Therefore, at every step you need to verify who you entrust with what data. In the case of the latest technologies, we have contact with the whole world, although the other side of the coin are cybercriminals who wait for every mistake we make. When it comes to mobile technologies, for some time now, various types of viruses, spyware, etc., which infect our phones, appear regularly on the system signed with the green robot. A new one has just appeared that steals our data from the phone.

The editors of CyberNews have discovered that a total of 30 Android applications, which are primarily designed to support the cameras in our phones, take advantage of our ignorance and download our location data, search history, etc. and forward them to be used to bombard us with personalized ads but it is possible that they are also used for more dangerous purposes. As many as 16 of these 30 applications come from Hong Kong, and it is worth adding that in total the entire list of these 30 applications has been downloaded over 1.5 billion advice. The most popular of them have even 300 million users, which proves the scale of the problem. It is worth reviewing the applications installed on smartphones and checking if any of the following is not on your phones. Below you will find the full list of applications, I will only add that each of them is normally available in the Google Play store.
