You Should Get Rid of These Android Apps Right Away

Apps have certainly come a long way. There are apps that can do just about anything and they can certainly make life a lot easier.

Although some apps seem to be innocent to download and use, there are others that actually run in the background and gather delicate information about its users. And we've already seen quite a number of such apps-- the ones that steal your personal data, spy on you, or even sign you up for premium services without your consent.

Fortunately, there are security firms that regularly run a check on apps to make sure they aren't doing some of those things. One of those security firms, Cybernews, recently shared a list of beauty editing apps that you should not install on your Android device. Or if you already have these apps on your phone, you should uninstall them right away:

  • B612 - Beauty & Filter Camera
  • BeautyCam
  • Beauty Camera
  • Beauty Camera - Best Selfie Camera & Photo Editor
  • Beauty Camera - Selfie Camera
  • Beauty Camera - Selfie Camera & Photo Editor
  • Beauty Camera - Selfie Camera with Photo Editor
  • Beauty Camera Makeup Face Selfie, Photo Editor
  • Beauty Camera Plus - Sweet Camera & Makeup Photo
  • Beauty Makeup, Selfie Camera Effects & Photo Editor
  • BeautyPlus - Easy Photo Editor & Selfie Camera
  • Beauty Selfie Plus - Sweet Camera Wonder HD Camera
  • Bestie - Camera360 Beauty Cam
  • Candy Camera - selfie, beauty camera & photo editor
  • Face Makeup Camera & Beauty Photo Makeup Editor
  • HD Camera Selfie Beauty Camera
  • Makeup Camera-Selfie Beauty Filter Photo Editor
  • Photo Editor - Beauty Camera
  • Pretty Makeup, Beauty Photo Editor & Selfie Camera
  • Selfie cam - Bestie Makeup Beauty Camera & Filters
  • Selfie Camera - Beauty Camera
  • Selfie Camera - Beauty Camera & AR Stickers
  • Selfie camera - Beauty Camera & Makeup camera
  • Selfie Camera - Beauty Camera & Photo Editor
  • Sweet Selfie - Selfie Camera & Makeup Photo Editor
  • Sweet Selfie Snap - Sweet Camera & Beauty Cam Snap
  • Sweet Snap - Beauty Selfie Camera & Face Filter
  • YouCam Perfect - Best Photo Editor & Selfie Camera
  • YouCam Perfect - Best Selfie Camera & Photo Editor
  • Z Beauty Camera

The apps mentioned above steal your personal data and even takes control of your selfie camera without your permission. There are also some apps on the list that displays full-display ads on your device and even require permission for audio and location even though they are not necessary for the function of the app. Even more surprising is that there are apps on the list that are run by the same group that were caught offering malware-packed apps in the past.

While these apps may seem innocuous, they actually have some danger to your security.  They may be free to use but the cost in return is far greater than any monetary value. This is why it is best to uninstall these apps from your device.
