Google has removed 30 popular apps from its Play Store, believing that these are malicious malware and can harm you. Most of these apps add beauty filters to your photos. These apps will not be available for download from the Play Store for new users. However, they have already been installed by 20 million users and they need to make sure that these apps are uninstalled from smartphones.

Among the 30+ apps, it’s the third-party selfie apps that have found to be most fraudulent. As per security researchers WhiteOps, the apps have the ability to bombard users with unwanted ads and redirect them to websites without ever clicking on a link. It should also be noted that in some cases, it was nearly “impossible” for users to delete these apps once downloaded.

Here is the list of apps:

“What these apps all have in common – besides their fraudulent tactics – is their focus on beauty. Most purport to be selfie apps that add beauty filters to users’ pictures, while at the same time showing ads out of context and making it nearly impossible to remove the apps themselves,” WhiteOps explained.

In the time since that first app was published, the fraudsters published a new app every 11 days on average. Notably, most of these apps were available for a duration of around 17 days each before they were pulled down.
