Fake Pokemon Go Apps – Download At Your Own Risk
October 29, 2016
Most people minimize the risks of downloading insecure apps on to their phones. There seems to be the impression that the Google and Apple App Stores perform detailed due diligence with respect to security. Not true. Download at your own risk.
If you’ve downloaded this app and believe you’ve been infected, the best choice would be to uninstall and factory reset your device. However, some experts have concluded that even performing a factory reset might not work. The end user may have to wipe the disk clean and reinstall the OS from scratch. In the future, be wary of apps that aren’t released through official channels. Even in the case that an app is on the Google Play store, there can still be a chance that it’s infected with malware.
