Uninstall These Apps, They’ve Been Stealing Your FB Login Details All along

Published

on

This might probably be one of the reasons why some people complaints about their Facebook account being compromise because some apps you installed are busy stealing your login details.

According to a new report, 9 Google play apps have been busy stealing Facebook login of users and their passwords, and the apps have been downloaded more than 5.8 million times.

Apps stealing password

These apps stealing your password and login details were;

  • PIP Photo by Lillians, downloaded more than 5,000,000 times.
  • Processing Photo by chikumburahamilton, downloaded more than 500,000 times.
  • Horoscope Daily by Hscope Daily mom, downloaded more than 100,000 times.
  • Inwell Fitness by Reuben Germaine, downloaded more than 100,000 times.
  • Rubbish Cleaner by SNT.rbcl, downloaded more than 100,000 times.
  • App Lock Keep by Sheralaw Rence, downloaded more than 50,000 times
  • App Lock Manager by Implummet col, downloaded more than 10,000 times.
  • Lockit Master by Enali mchicolo, downloaded more than 5,000 times.
  • Horoscope Pi by Talleyr Shauna, downloaded more than 1,000 times.

According to malware analyst Dr. Web, showing the apps used five malware variants between them, three of which were native to Android and two others using the Google Flutter framework.

All of the variants used identical configuration file formats and JavaScript code, so they were classified as the same trojan.

Dr. Web said those applications look like legitimate apps. Say, they offer basic photo editing features and the likes. But the developers of these apps steal Facebook passwords. Of course, Google has been informed about this and these apps are no longer available on the Google Play market.

If you have downloaded any of the above-listed applications, it is advisable you uninstall them, scan your device with good anti-virus, and most importantly, change your password to avoid your Facebook account being hijacked.
