Google has removed two Android apps that have been installed together over 1.5 million times. The apps were making money for those behind it by running pop-up advertisements that rang the cash register for the bad actors every time someone clicked on an ad. You might say to yourself, well, what’s the harm. Why begrudge some guy out there because he’s making some dough. But the truth is, these ad playing apps can take up some of your phone’s resources and help drain the battery.
Wandera reported the apps to Google on September 11th, and as we pointed out, they have since been removed from the Google Play Store.
