Millions of Samsung users tricked by fake app

The app store provides thousands of apps to choose from, and the majority are free to download and use.

Those who used it, were directed to an ad-filled site which tricked users into purchasing a premium subscription for free software.

The report mentions that the app offered a free download with restricted speed limits of 56KBps, which took around four hours to finish a download more than 500MB in size.

F-Droid is an wonderful Aptiode alternative as it is rather a unique app store, easy to use, and offering a quick download process. The app store also offers the possibility to search for the app or game you want by the device they are compatible with.

Kuprins told netizens to refrain from blaming Samsung users for falling for the scam.

On the back of the camera is a 3-inch touchscreen LCD with 180 degrees of tilting up for selfies and 45 degrees of tilting down. This EVF is 0.39 inches, has a 2.36 million dot resolution with 120 fps refresh rate, and features a "Smooth Priority" option.

The researcher also said that it would be wrong to judge people for mistakenly going to the unofficial application store for firmware updates. "Vendors frequently bundle their Android OS builds with an intimidating number of software and it can easily get confusing". There is this ongoing dispute on where and how much do clients spend money every year. A great thing about F-Droid is that you don't have to register or log in to use and download its apps.

Chuck it up as experience and don't make the same mistake again.

On the other hand, Google Play Store, the official platform on Android-run smartphones, got $14.2 billion of profits in the first half of this year.

Reflecting poorly on Google's app vetting process, another incident of a fake Android app amassing millions of downloads has surfaced. The update can be simply downloaded just by connecting the smartphone to a stable Wi-Fi network and waiting for it to arrive via OTA (over the air) channels.

Adding further to the list of concerns is the fact that payments made to purchase a subscription on "Updates For Samsung" were processed through the companies own website and not Google Play which is usually a case.
