Facebook warns about 400 password-stealing apps! Camera, beauty, VPN apps on the list

The tech giant has uncovered more than 400 malicious Android and iOS apps this year which steal usernames and passwords. 45 out of the 400 apps it found were on iOS, while the rest were on Android. They masquerade themselves as popular services like photo editors, games and VPNs to trick people into downloading them.

How do these malicious apps work?

Apart from displaying fun images on app stores, the developers of these apps may have published fake reviews. This helped them to cover up “negative reviews by people who have spotted the defunct or malicious nature of the apps” and trick others into downloading the malware.

When a person installs the malicious app on their device, it asks them to “Login with Facebook” in order to access the promised features. When the person enters his/ her credentials, the malware steals the username and password. After that, hackers can have full access to that person’s account.

How to stay protected from these malware apps

  • If the app is asking for your social media credentials to use the app, beware! Check if the app is unusable if you don’t provide your Facebook information.
  • Is the app reputable? Check for its download count, ratings and reviews, including negative ones. Cross check before downloading.
  • Does the app provide the functionality it promised? If not, delete it immediately.
  • If you think you are affected, then reset and create new strong passwords.
  • Don’t forget to enable two-factor authentication, to add an extra security layer to your account.
